Hi All,

Working on this stacked button brooch and I'm a bit stuck and hoping I can get some good ideas here.

Here's where I'm at so far. I've stitched up a stacked pyramid but I'm not sure where to go from here. I'm not sure that I don't need to do something to hide the sewing thread better but Mom said she thought it looked fine as it is.

I was thinking of adding a bit of lace edging in between two layers of the felt to both make a finished back and add a little bit extra. I think it needs a little bit of something to turn it from nice to wow but can't quite figure out what that would be.

Sorry for the photo quality. All of the buttons are the same exact color despite what the picture looks like.

Any suggestions?

aka Michele

I don't know what you're doing here but it looks GREAT! I like the stitches, buttons look odd without them.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

"Buttons look odd without stitches." That's a point. Hadn't thought of it that way. Was thinking it didn't look finished with the stitches showing.
