I stopped feeling bad about adding to my stash even though I still have stuff to go through. If it makes more sense money wise, then good.

Also, sometimes it's just nice to get something new.

Woe, alas! Grin Mellybelly, I might suggest a penance of making/decorating a container to keep said buttons in, thereby claiming it as a way to inspire you to do some destashing.

So I broke down and bought a tank top and 4 yards of material to turn into a maxi dress. So adding to my stash but I do have a project in mind. Now to make time to get out the sewing machine.

I agree with you, meleriffic, if it makes more sense moneywise...


I made another button ring.

So, there's some green. Smiley

And yesterday, my sister-in-law asked me if I could make something for a newborn and a 14-month-old baby. So, I made a couple hats.


I found a site with a guide to how big hats should be for different ages... I hope the site was right and the hats fit!

Last night was my church's monthly craft night and I actually remembered. Since I had already finished my swap item earlier in the day, I decided to make a baby hat. I still need to make a flower for it.
I thought the yarn looked a bit like bark so the edging has a cabled forest and the flower is a dogwood. I like how the button goes with the yarn. the top is sort of a upside down tree branching out.





I used wire, beads, ribbon, and monofilament for swap item and yarn of course for the hat.

I do like that hat with the flower, the bark wool is lovely and it kind of inspires me.......

Mellybelly81 - I say just put the buttons in a nice jar and enjoy.  I have tons and tons of buttons, but I don't consider them stash.  They're a collection.  (I can't be the only one to do that, right?  Right?)
