I hope you are all having a super week :)
The other day my nan visited and she brought me a little present, a WHOLE quality street tin FULL of buttons! I was so excited, she said it was her friends but she didin't need it any more as she is almost 100 and doesn't get round to doing much sewing anymore. I had a long look through and therewere so many pretty ones. The more buttons the merrier- it means you can always find the perfect one for the project you are working on... which is exactly what happened today:
When me and my mum wwnet to the V and A about a month back now to see the costume and fashion displays when we weree in the gift shop my mum saw a pretty collar accessory but it was a little bit too much for us to afford! I remebered she had liked them but couldn't find a collar that I thought was her style to buy her for Christmas, Yesterday I thought why not just make her one! So did, I made up a pattern piece and got started :) Today I finished it and then went through my new (giant) button box and found the perfect centre decoration for my collar:
My mum said that button was her favourite so that is the one I added, so it was her style :-) She really liked it and when she tried it on it was perfect size so I was super happy! :D as you never quite know until you try it on.
Hehehe :0) In other news I finally bring you the photo of the gifts for this years crafty advent
calendar giveaway for any of still curious:
See you all soon,
Bye :) xxx
