Custom Designs to share!

My little button factory has been busy, busy this month creating such a wide range of buttons and felt appliques for the shop, as well as some private custom orders.

I really enjoy custom work, creating those little one-of-a-kind pieces for scrapbooks, children's clothing and kit clubs. I find custom work to be so inspiring and I reach all sorts of new heights to my creative level when I am presented someone's vision.

I get requests like this one, "I would like buttons to go with my Key West photos, or buttons to go with my son's wedding with coral, kiwi and Callalillies"

It's these kinds of requests that push my creativity full force and I come up with things I never knew possible.

I thought it would be fun to share some of the custom designs I've created recently.

1.) Special set for a fun customer who has spent some time in the Florida Keys......

A special request for buttons to go with pictures from Fishing trips to No. Michigan.

Another No. Michigan embellishment....see the tiny boat and ors...very tiny ;)

#4.) More Florida Keys Deep Sea Fishing buttons......kinda like a little Nemo ;)

I've been working with a great designer at Paisley and Posies to create custom felt appliques for onesies and T's. She also creates the most fantastic Tutu's and beanies. Here are my favorites and even a few pics of them in action!

Perfectly divalicious!!!

Um, can we say ---->C U T E????????

This little Robot dude is being added to her shop next month and the photo of the little guy in it is just too darn adorable. I'll be sure to share it as soon as it's posted!

For the little rocker guy :) I had SO MUCH fun creating these felt appliques.

I also created this fun set of bird embellishments. My customer wanted something cute and colorful to add to the center of her Prima flowers.......

Here is a custom order for patriotic themed felt appliques and buttons in a distressed look.

I also did some button sets for Create My Keepsake's May Card Kit. Inspired by the colors of the papers and embellisments selected for the kit, I designed these buttons........

I hope everyone is having a great week. I am turning the BIG 30 tomorrow YIKES.........
