I don't think you've flipped your lid with the buttons or jewelry, I'd wear them! I love the photo with the bags... beautiful! I'm in love with all the bright colors I think
Check out my fun tutorial I did for Pellon! They asked me to do something with sew in interfacing... except I didn't 'sew it in'... I made the most adorable flowers for a headband and flower girl bouquet. The best thing about this stuff is it doesn't fray, is light and airy and super easy to work with.
I put my funky fabric covered buttons in the centre of all the flowers... I love them. You are definitely going to see these in an art quilt... although they may be dyed a different colour, will have to do some experimenting=)
Here is a picture of a little creative fun. I have made a bunch of 'button jewellry', including rings, earrings and bracelets. I am going to try and sell it in my little town. Wish me luck!
And you are not going to believe my next two art quilts I have designed, one is using plastic toys and maps, and the other is using copious amounts of ric rac=) I will post pics once I make some progress off of the paper!
