Button Wednesday - Work in Progress - A Pink Heart

In my last post I showed you some buttons I was making. They are for this project. A little framed heart picture.

Here I am thinking about which buttons to use.

I have lost my special pen which has disappearing ink, so had to do a tracing of the frame and actually this works really well.At this stage I decided to only use my handmade Dorset buttons.


I still haven't finished.  However, I have sewn on all the buttons. Now I am making the little french knots.


So still a way to go. When it is finished I will show you.  It has been great fun playing around with the stitches and the colours.
