Mr Button Pouch08:00
I can't believe I lied to you! I did make another Christmas gift, this time for my dad, who loves to create things so is always grateful of art 'stuff' storage!
My sister gave me a set of Mr Button buttons from John Caswell design a couple of Christmases ago.
They're so fun I've been hoarding them, not wanting to waste them on a project unworthy of their quirkiness.
I just stitched them on with some embroidery floss. I chose boring colours compared to some of the examples I've seen! I can't give my dad a pouch with a button with green hair on though! I suspect he wouldn't have minded even so!
I used this fabric from Dus' Granny's stash (which has become fully integrated with my stash!) for the back and lining of the pouch and a lime green zip.
It was fun to use zany colours for once, I think I've become a bit tied into what sort of fabrics I use, and it's good to break out sometimes, right?
When's the last time you tried something 'quirky'?
