I finished my January button and am quite pleased with the results. I did have to ask Robin just how she gets the backs on those half-dome buttons. It seems i should have done a running stitch to gather the fabric before i put the back on. As with my last year project, i'm sure things will get easier as i go along!
I am really happy with the format i choose. I wanted something i could hold in my hand, with dimension, that could be encrusted and that i could finish quickly! WHY? Because I have so many other projects just waiting to done, as well as a big house to clean and 20 pounds to lose :)
I already started February last night and can't wait to get back to it SOMETIME today!
No blog - YET... - but i'll post it on FLICKR so you can take a peek if you'd like.
OR - simply CLICK on the FLICKR logo on the left hand side of this blog page, under the IMPORTANT BJP LINKS, and you will go there directly - hope this helps get you there!!
FYI: as previously mentioned I am using size 100 - about 2 1/2, half-dome dritz buttons. They were the largest size i was able to locate when deciding on a form for my project this year :)
