button swap is complete. In March, I had enthusiastically signed up for the swap hosted by greetingarts and then found that time was encroaching...
here. I used a thrifted linen napkin (the color is a little more like pale mustard than the photo shows). The little yellow cheese slices were an add-on at the last minute.
I used mainly backstitching, 'satin-like' stitches and some French knots for the ears. It was fun, but after covering 8 buttons with a button kit (did a few extra), my thumbs and forefingers are a tad sore. Does anyone use a hammer to press the backs of the buttons on? I think however, I will attempt something like this again and add it onto one my purses.
P.S. - After typing this post, I found these great mice. And of course, I remembered seeing this great tutorial on mousey and his bed , a free stuffed mouse pattern to make and then of course there's the tailor mouse and Hunca Munca. So very cute!
Have a good weekend.
