I've been cross stitching for about 3 months and I'm ready to expand. I like working with the smaller project. It's really satisfying to complete something nearly daily and be much more portable. An afghan can take months and it's going to sit in the same spot for a while.
First was these...
Which I LOVE. The colors are perfect. I made them into earrings but they felt weird and I don't have the guts to wear them. So I'm going to rip off the earring back and make them buttons also.
But I'm wearing them everydamnwhere.
Then this -
I experimented with an idea I saw on Pinterest. I LOVE this.
I buttoned it and threw it on my pea coat.
Then I did a heart and a skull.
These are just something cute for Violet's coat.
The skull is done in Kreinik Metallics. This stuff is great. I have a huge assortment of colors to play with. :D
She loves skulls and monsters. She calls them "rawrs".
The buttons are 7/8" and 1". They have a few different sizes and I'm mos def going to be making more. I love me some buttons.
I'm planning a tutorial for the buttons. That is. If you want one...
