I also love the button on the business card holder...I noticed it because I have a small collection of those buttons that I found in my MIL stuff...are they vintage?  Mine are made of this really hard plastic?
Yeah, it's made of reeeeally hard plastic, and I'm pretty sure it's vintage because the plastic looks aged--not just worn out, but aged. I got it at a flea market a couple weeks ago, buried in a bag of a bunch of other buttons. There were some really neat vintage buttons in among the regular ones, and this was one of them.

Felt is so versatile and so darn cute!


I worked with felt for the first time this week....so painful. Is there an easy way to embroider it?

How was it difficult? I find most varieties of felt to be a pleasure to work and embroider with.

Trying to embroider straight on it, I could not get nice neat wording no matter how hard I tried. I used various strands of floss. Do you need to use a stabilizer? Should I have used a tapestry needle instead of a normal needle?
I don't have anywhere near this much trouble with the fabrics I usually use

I've never really had much of a problem and never used stabilizer with it. Mostly I've done backstitch on felt, but I don't imagine that other stitches would behave weirdly on it either. =/ And I used a regular embroidery needle. Sorry I'm not much help.

It may have just been poor quality felt. I bought a couple of multipacks from Spotlight, worked out to 50cents a 20cm x 30cm sheet/piece

Today I learned how to make t-shirt yarn



And although I'm going to need to make a ton more to make a braided rug, I'm going to count the learning as a project!

shan-E-bear - super cute hat (and adorable model!)

QueenNinjaMonkey - Your t-shirt yarn turned out great! I have been trying to buy inexpensive t-shirts to make t-shirt yarn but haven't actually made any yet. That is definitely a project that I want to do this summer!
