Welcome to my sewing blog! I'll be showing photos and talking about some of the sewing and serger projects I teach at Austin's Sewing Center, at the local public library, at other locations, or have made just for my own enjoyment. God has blessed me with the gift of sewing and I love to share it with everyone. Hopefully, you will be blessed by what you see and read here! Thank you for visiting.

Covered Button Craft Show Projects
I'm getting closer to being finished with my craft show items! Hallelujah! Here are some more photos of the covered button projects I'll have in my booth.
The top two photos are some memo holders I've made from an acrylic photo frame with a matching pen. I used two sizes of sticky notes and a covered button with a butterfly embroidery. I'm happy with the way they turned out. I'm working on more with a red/black color scheme and a University of Louisville embroidered button. I think I'll also make a blue/white University of Kentucky button for a few of them.
I've made lots of these layered flowers, from Hope Yoder's Layered Flower CD. These are sewn onto stretchy headbands and covered buttons with a clover embroidery design from Hope Yoder.

These are brooches made with the layered flowers and embroidered covered buttons. A pin back is placed on the back side. These would look great on a dress, a jacket, a purse, a tote bag.
This white layered flower has white fabric, white organza and white bridal tulle. The covered button is embroidered with irridescent metallic thread. Wouldn't this look fabulous on a white and black outfit?
Here is an assortment of holiday/event themed covered buttons that will go with the badge reel shown. I'll package these in a set of 5 buttons along with the badge reel. I realized after I took the picture that I left out the snowflake that I stitched with metallic threads. It turned out very "sparkly!"
