Well, my ‘little project’ did Involve buttons in the end but what sweet little pony buttons are these?!
I took a trip to my favourite haberdashery stall in Shepherds Bush market this morning, intent on getting some little red buttons but I didn’t bank on finding little red ponies!
Following on from the keyring lavender pillow I made Samaria, I got all inspired to make a heart shaped one. Transpires its really difficult to turn little hearts inside out when they are made of furnishing fabric, so I went for the shabby chic look, sewing wrong sides together and pinking the edges!
Each one is a little bit different owing to the placement of the design in the fabric. I tried to make each side contrasting just to add a bit of interest. I think I gave these little beauties more thought than I’ve ever given a garment when it comes to placement!
Samaria wanted some to give her friends and has now put an order in for her teachers!
I can’t tell you how gorgeous this Jersey Lavender is. I’m a bit hooked to be honest… and very relaxed!
I have put some in my Etsy shop as a tiny move closer to having handmade dresses in there… at some point in the future!
