Okay, after stumbling upon silk ribbon embroidery I had to do a test swatch immediately, but all that I had at hand was a weird poly-satin tape. meek. But nevertheless, it turned out quite nice, condidering. And after a few thoughts about what to make with the swatch (a brooch maybe?) I was hit by my omnipresent button addiction and just covered an ugly brown platic button with it.

If you want to recreate the button, a tutorial can be found here.

Have fun Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Uber Gorgeous!  Since you did both sides, I'd stick a jump ring on it and wear it as a pendant!
