I have several jars of buttons. All kinds of pretty buttons. Small, big, shiny, colorful. The problem is when I am looking for something I have to empty the whole jar to look through, and then maybe the next jar, and the next.
So it was the case the other day. I am not sure why I was looking for a button, but in the bin with my button jars, I came across two dishes full of nick-nacks. And among those trinkets and such, I fund a handful or more of shrinky dink charms I made long ago and used to sell at a boutique in Gilbert.
The shrinky dinks had Arabic symbols with the English interpretation underneath it. Going through all those made me forget why I needed a button in the first place and I got all excited about making something with the shrinky dinks I found.
So here…work in progress….shrink dinks and fabric scraps, put together with few machine stitches and few hand stitches and little works of art emerge. These will soon be necklaces.
