My five year old daughter also enjoys looking at the buttons and spent the afternoon yesterday finding what she called the 'interesting ones'. This inspired today's project. It's a collaboration. It's a top with a bit of a lace collar and lots of buttons sewn on. It's all hand sewing so anyone can do it. The top we just got from Juliet's wardrobe.
Craft cupboard materials.
- assorted buttons
- lace doily/collar
The result is quite striking and makes a plain (and cheap - I think this top was about $3 at best and less) top look a lot more interesting.
