Title: Vintage Button Scull NetBook Cozy
Post by: kiwiblue on November 16, 2009 08:40:25 PM
 











 Iv been looking all over to find a netbook cozy  that I liked ..Never really found anything exciting . Im ashamed to admit I drag my netbook everywhere I go .

I made this Button Scull for the button chalenge but never decided what to do with it and I did not read all the rules until after I finished it . You had to use it on somthing already made.

Even though I suck when it comes to sewing with a macheine , its the same thing that happens when I try to fish I end up with a big  ball of tangled mess ..

I thought how bad can it be its just a big padded envalope .So this is what I ended up with .Even though I don't sew I have a collection of fabric (Dizzy)  I had this Beautiful Grayish purple embossed velvet I finally got to use ..

I like how it turned out but am wondering If I need to embellish it more on the front
??
Opinions Are Greatly Appreciated . As long as its not about my grammar  :) Thanks for looking Arther

That is so cool!
I love the idea of using the vintage buttons for the skull applique. The colored thread adds a great touch.

I think the skull looks great by itself and needs no further embellishing. (This coming from a girl who firmly believes that more is more not less.) I think anything more and it would take away from the skull which is so awesome as the focal point. I love the fabric too, such a great color. Keep up the creativity!

I am impressed with your skull. I also like the simplicity of the front, I think if you embellished it that would take away from the awesomeness that is the skull. Best use of buttons I've seen in a long time.

That's really neat! I'm not a skull fan either, but I like the style that you've done.

But... what's a net book? Am I slow?

I love that! I've been trying to decide what to do with a bunch of old buttons I have lying around, and this has given me a few ideas... Thanks! And I agree with the others, leave it as it is.

Thats a really cool design. Never thought of using buttons like that! I'd love to have that on a pair of jeans or a jacket or something (ding ding project idea, lol). Really nice.

Agreeing with everyone. The scull is all you need. I love the colored thread also. This is such a grand idea.

This is gorgeous- what a great idea. I would totally carry this everywhere, and I think Edgar Allen Poe would too  ;)
