Buttons and Knits

I really love seeing my custom buttons come to life on knitted projects! For the customer it all starts with a skien of beautiful yarn and for me it all begins with a little block of clay, and then they come together to create a beautiful sweater.

Kristine Holland of Peanut Pants ordered a set of 1/2 inch buttons to match her lovely colorway in tones of purple, blue and green.  This sweater is stunning and the buttons are the perfect touch!



I combined my signature bird design with my cherry blossom  branch design using her colorway.

Thank you, Kristine for sharing your beautiful project with us.  Your work is truly beautiful

Enjoy the tutorial by Rachel! (GIVEAWAY DAY!!)

Today, we bring you fun tutorial by Rachel. In this tutorial she cleverly shows us how to take something like mail and make it into an art piece!

For her tutorial she chose to work with our lovely "Spring Garden" button collection.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rachel's clever tutorial!

My husband has worked in the railroad industry his entire adult life and he has climbed the ladder quickly. everyday i am so thankful for the BNSF as they have provided us a nice life, particularly during these hard economic times. tessa ann's buttons coordinated perfectly with the monthly BNSF employee newsletter.

1.) gather supplies, including scraps of leftover scrapbook paper, junk mail that coordinates, and leftover embellishments (i save everything!)

2.) cut base paper to 2.5" x 3.5" (the standard artist trading card size)

3.) get creative! i don't worry about straight lines or centering text. since i prefer a messy look, these little beauties are perfect! and they are super quick as well.

Viola! Beautiful  pieces of art to keep for yourself or to put smile on a friends face :)
