I had gone to my local fabric/haberdashery shop last week looking for some buttons for this and future blouses. I was really disappointed in their choices and in the prices too. I'm sorry but, if a (boring) 1cm button cost 70p and I need 10 of them for my blouse, that's £7 just for the buttons. That's just ridiculous in my humble opinion.
So, I came home empty-handed, went on to eBay and searched for some button selling shops on there. I got all of these - 205 buttons in total - for £7.25 including postage. Very happy with that!!
I was doodling the other day and came up with an idea for a quilt design.
I then got out my squared paper and coloured pencils and started filling in some colours.
Then I decided to brush up on my Photoshop skills and this is what I ended up with. I am so pleased with it!
I'm not claiming that this is a new design - are there any new designs out there? I doubt it. Anyway, I now have to work out what size I'm going to make each strip - I'm thinking 9" x 3" or 6" x 2" finished size - and then how much fabric I'll need to get it done. It's going to be amazing!!
