All Buttoned Up

What a week! Busy with social stuff and fabric stuff, it just doesn't get any better than that does it? Today I'm off to meet someone who's in the area, and I can't wait. With the onset of some cooler weather.. well the week couldn't be better.


I'm not one to want to hog the whole good times to myself, so I thought I'd have a little giveaway here!  How about one repeat of my button card fabric?  It's pretty cute, and a perfect example of Holly's genius in action.  She took the tiny idea of some button cards and turns it into this.  Some fantastic collaboration right there - in fabric - with my name on it.  But the genius.. all Holly.


Leave me a comment telling me what you might do with it, and I'll pull a name out of the hat Sunday night! How's that? Pretty easy right? Now, you guys have an awesome weekend then come back and tell me all about it next week! xo

That is adorable fabric. I'd probably think of a project for Valentines, but I'd have to think on it awhile.

I think the button cards would make a great center for a log cabin-style quilt. All pinks and reds all around - it'd be a lovely Valentine's quilt!

I was thinking of cutting it apart and making quilt squares for some pillows. But let's be honest, I'm have a fabric addiction so it may go into a pretty stack in my sewing room. I love looking at and feeling fabric! Is there any help for me???

Blogger Library Gal Quilts said...

I think cutting them apart and making a needle case with the "cards" as the front and back would be adorable. You could line that part, turn and then do some cute stitching like a decorative stitch or top stitch. Then place a piece of wool or felt inside and maybe embroider a little heart on that. Slip in a pretty gold needle threaded and ready to go. Special Pam Kitty Morning Love to share with your sewing buddies!

There just so dang cute! I think we'll be seeing this in quilt borders. But it would be darling as a border on a little girl's dress. Or imagine a row on some white curtains in a vintage kitchen. With a matching apron. I think the possibilities go on and on.

Love the fabric. You have to know I have a couple of button boxes, okay more than a couple including a jar of my mom's as well as one containing buttons well loved by Dale's maiden aunt Bea.

Such adorable fabric! I'm thinking something for my sewing room? Seeing the 15 cents on the one card of buttons reminded me of something I pulled out of my trim drawer the other day. An unopened package of soutache - wrapped in brittle cellophane. Yep. 15 cents! No telling how old that thing is!! LOL
Thanks for your generosity.

Happy Sewing!

With 7 granddaughters to sew for, I'm thinking skirts, aprons, purses, pillows and pillowcases, zip bags, heck...there's no end to the possibilties. Add buttons for embellishments. Red, pink, buttons strawberries equal a little bit of heaven for girls...big and little.

Blogger Simone de Klerk said...

I saw this lovely fabric on Nanette's blog and had to run to you right away.
Such a sweet and cute fabric design.
To tell you the truth, I would not cut in this fabric for a while. Would probably hang it on the wall to look at it. And if I make something, I think I would make mug rugs and pincushions, so that I can make lots and share them with others. Who wouldn't it make happy?

9:33 AM

nanette sent me. I love that fabric and I collect button cards from antique stores. I don't know what I would do with it. It is one of those fabrics that would be hard to cut into for me. thanks for a chance.

It would be hard to cut it up.... but I think it would make a really cute game for the kiddos - sort of a memory game type of thing - a set of 2 of each button card design... probably back it with iron on interfacing to make them a little stiffer... layer that with batting and a backing like wool felt, blanket stitch to the backing - like little cards... put in a cute little bag/fabric basket (like ps i quilt's friendship bag free pattern) made with the same fabric to store it in... for my nieces! For Valentine's Day! :O)

At first I thought I would have to back a quilt with it - not cut into it because it's so dang cute! But then I thought how great it would be to have an apron and some hot pads or even a tote bag! Or pillow cases or a table topper, or, or, or!!! I would probably have to "pet" it for a while before I truly decided! xo
