A badge in a little crocheted jacket!


Yay! I have finally got around to making some of these. I had this idea a little while ago and have been meaning to try it out. They came out better than I thought they would.



These are great fun to make, choosing colour combinations to using buttons. Most of these will be one of a kind as I love using vintage buttons and coming up with different designs. This is one of my favourites -




There will be a selection of these available at The Gift Tree and both my Etsy and Folksy shops.





The cards are made from some fab postcards I found, I am a sucker for stationary. When I bought them I didn't know what I would use them for. Now that I do I wish I had bought more.



I'm sure I will be making more of these soon, after I have made a few of my new crocheted flower brooches. Another idea I have been toying with for a while. I will blog about these soon.

these look fantatstic, i like the grey and yellow one the colours go great together. i make lots of coin purses and my favorite part of that is picking out the buttons for the zip pulls
