How to make a fabric button with thick fabric / self fabric buttons livi...


Another short video this week. Yesterday was the last of my currently scheduled zoom courses, and I think it was the best. I have consistently tried to learn from each as to what I have done and could do to make the whole distance learning thing a bit better, and hope that my students also felt it was good!

Hot day here today, might just stay in and do the work stuff I need to do. Of course, just sitting in the sun is a good idea too...

We've another couple of shows this weekend over on The Craft Store - so of course quite a bit to do. Sadly, kit packing really can't happen outside. Would love to though!

I have joined a Facebook group just so that I can correct their post about Dorset buttons... I am officially obsessed (if I wasn't before) or would a Bore be a better word? 

I hope that you are all having a lovely weekend.

How to make Eyelet Lace - Broderie Anglaise / Stamping on fabric for emb...


Here we are - the last one!

You can see, if you look closely, there is the odd place where I didn't fully cover the line. Of course, this really isn't as obvious in real life - but boy my camera picks up detail. That's why I often take a picture of a vintage button I'm studying then zoom in!

Ok, so the sun is still out! Wow. Time to go enjoy it a little.
Have a lovely day and stay well everyone x

And... part 3!

Slowly getting there. I spent a very long time trying to get a neat zoom effect to work, it didn't, I gave up. Need to practice that one methinks...

Another sunny day, a little bit more tidying done, sorting out the home office and doing laundry. I'm living it large this bank holiday!

I hope that you are all having a lovely weekend.

How to make Eyelet Lace - Broderie Anglaise / Stamping on fabric for emb...


A lovely sunny day - actually hot today! Doesn't that make a change for a bank holiday weekend? 
I've actually given all of my carpets a quick clean. my cleaner has decided to dump water at every pass, not just when the trigger is down, which does mean that I'm not quite as good at it as I used to be...

Here's part 2 of the series. As I say in the video, I really am please with the results I have had with the stamping inks so far, it is always scary when you are using white! 

I hope that you are all enjoying your day. 
Stay safe and well x
