One of the joys of the show last week was meeting new people. I was lucky enough to be located across from Carol who makes lovely little things under the name Itchy Bird. One morning, I arrived early to find Carol making up some craft kits to cover your own buttons ... I couldn't resist a bit of crafting before the show opened, so I played around with some of Carol's kits. I was addicted, and bought a couple so that I could cover buttons with my own fabric ...
I just love them! The red and yellow things below are all you need to cover the buttons (once you've cut out a circle of fabric and you have the button bits - try Spotlight or Lincraft) - so easy! The good thing is that you can get larger ones too (search the supplies section of etsy for button kits). All this time I thought you needed an expensive machine ... yay for fellow crafters!
Just a quick note to let you know that all of the red tram roll tea towels sold out at the show, and I have a just a few of the blue ones left, so I put them in the shop along with some fabric and fabric packs. Fingers crossed I'll be able to source more of the lovely linen I used for the red tea towels again ... I'll keep you posted.
Don't forget to drop in and see Kirsty to find out what everyone else is up to today in their creative spaces.
