I had never even considered dyeing my own buttons until I came across this tutorial on the RIT website . I have a huge amount of white and translucent buttons, which are all a bit dull and I can never quite find a use for them, but I also can't bring myself to get rid of them! Dying the buttons would be the answer to my problems - but one of the biggest problems I have - it that RIT dye is not available in the UK as far as I am aware and I can't find an equivalent product. So if you do have access to RIT, then do let me know how you get on - I would love to know!
This is a super-easy method for making a fun throw-pillow. This project is practically no-sew as well! I saw a throw like this last year in Crate & Barrell or Pottery Barn, or one of those magazines, and thought: I could make that. And now, you can too. Here are your supplies: heavy canvas fabric, felt for the circles, sharp scissors, Elmer's glue, DMC floss, and a biggish needle for embellishing, batting/stuffing and fabric for the pillow backing.
Remember when your mother "burst her buttons" because she was so proud of you? Don't you think it is time to replace them? Materials #6 plastic takeout covers
Button and Pin Art by Ran Hwang Ran Hwang created amazing button and pin art by sticking pins through buttons thousands of times, and then organizes them into the shape of a massive bird on a wall. Each image requires the hammering of thousands of pins with buttons into a wall.
Hooray... finally a project post! Now that I am on fall break, I'm hoping to get a couple of the projects on my to-do list knocked out. This particular project has been on my list for about four or five months. Yikes! My friend Briana is pregnant with a baby girl who is due at the end of the month and I wanted to make one of my favorite projects, a button-monogram J for her nursery.
You may already know about this amazing blog, it’s actually pretty popular. I like to think it’s been my secret source for some time and only now, because I just can’t keep it to myself any longer, am I willing to share it. It’s The Graphics Fairy , a blog full of free vintage images. I don’t know how she does it, but she finds the coolest old graphics, most in full color, and posts them on her constantly updated blog for FREE! (Did I mention they’re free?) And if you want a background for your blog, she does that too!
Welcome to the first day of Refashionista! I'm so glad you're here. Our first guest needs NO introduction, but I'm going to give her one anyhow. This is Disney from Ruffles and Stuff (and her gorgeous daughter). Her blog was one of the first craft blogs I found and I fell in love with it.
This is a fun project if you want to embellish a bag or a piece of clothing or if you just have a lot of extra buttons lying around. You can make something beautiful very quickly and easily. And there is something so relaxing about sitting down and embroidering for a hot minute.
