Dandelion life cycle buttons


Dandelion life cycle buttons, originally uploaded by soja.

I've had his idea for a while, and finally got around to it this weekend. There are six buttons in the set.

I embroidered the fabric first, using a hoop and one or two strands of six-strand cotton embroidery floss, then cut the linen-mix fabric and covered the buttons. Each button is about 2cm (7/8") in diameter.

Not sure what I am going to use them for.... perhaps they can go in the as-yet-unopened Etsy shop one day!

Wow! 100 posts.
