I've done a lot of button/bead random embroidery hoops, but this time I decided to try to shape it into something for P_E_S_T in the IYP swap (since she had similar things on her Pinterest!).  It's really tough Tetris-ing all the buttons in to make them fit!  But I'm pretty happy with how it turned out:



I originally did the outline with a running stitch (over tissue paper that had the design traced on it) but it wasn't nearly dark enough, so I went over it with a chain stitch.

I also toyed with the idea of adding dark buttons to the branch, but it would have just ended up as a row of buttons, because it's just too narrow.  I guess I could have used beads... I dunno.  I'm definitely going to do more of these!
