Me: "I wish I had some velvet buttons for this embroidery"
Friend: "Just cover some yourself"
Me, sarcastically: "Yeah, right!"
Friend: "Get yourself a button coverer!"
How on earth did I not know about this, how has the whole craft of button covering managed to pass me by?
I went home, searched ebay and picked one up for a couple of quid - I've been covering buttons ever since, and I'm loving it!
I went a bit mad with my favourite green velvet as the buttons reminded me of cushions of moss. I also covered some with bits of left over embossed velvet and I added some embroidery and beads.
I'm linking up with Julia (who knew exactly what a button coverer was) over at
