Beware the Platypirates and their tri-corner hats.

Hi there! Here is yet another button tree, though you may be interested in how I made the trunk.



I had some brown wool yarn hanging around, and so I cut it to appropriate lengths, twisted it up like the bark of a tree, and felted it right onto the fabric. It actually worked way better than I thought it would.

This hoop went off in a swap a while ago, but I just found the picture today.  Roll Eyes

C&C welcome!

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

Cool technique, I love the dimension that it gives the trunk. And I love the little birdy button!

Anyone have a couple extra felting needles? I'll trade for them!

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