Making Things


Making things

One of my favorite things to make are pouf buttons. Little squares of selected fabrics, are poufed into buttons...just like that. Easy & fun! I'm for that!

Now surely, I wasn't the inventor but I've been making these for various projects for quite some time. I'd rather make things than buy them. When I can.

It adds a bit of special to a project and I do have one in the works.
I joined a stitching group, you can check it out on my sidebar. An embroidery blog hop of some selected designs. Sounded like fun so I joined in.
I picked my design and figured out what I wanted to do with it, that took all afternoon.
so now I'm pulling threads, fabrics & making poufs.
I made so many pouf buttons that now I think, I need a bigger jar.

I have a button, on my sidebar for these and some more things coming. It's all about 'Making Things' ...my version.  There are those special tools and bits & bobs, that we just have to buy. In some cases, we just want them. But what about those things we really can make ourselves?
Possibly, I am a simple girl who likes to make things from nothing...
It makes me happy is all.
So, when you get a moment...check out the side button and view how I make these.
Let me know what you think and if you make something, instead of buying.
I would luv to hear from you!
