Do you remember my Button & Burlap Class that I teach? Well I did two myself… one was the letter “C” and one was a heart. The “C” went into a frame and the Heart.. is finally finished~ I just love it~ I did both pieces w/ in a few hours. Easy DIY project. Each button and embellishment is hand sewn on.. no hot glue was used.
You just start with one layer of flat bigger buttons, then slowly add a second layer to cover any holes. You do not want to do one section at a time, if you do you will waste buttons, time, and you will have a really thick /heavy letter or shape. You can basically see every button that I used. I don’t try to cover up any buttons. My friend Pam, the sewing queen made my heart into a pillow. I love how it turned out. My letter C, is currently re-framed and is for sale. My Heart found a new home on my favorite chair in my craft room. The chair is done by another awesome friend of mine Susan from Chic Retiques. It’s nice to have such crafty friends in my life~

RSVP is needed. Buttons, Burlap, Thread, Needle, & Embellishments provided. No frame or Pillow material. All classes are at my Studio. If you want to make your own I do sell buttons, burlap, and the thread that is needed.
If you want to take my class I need to know what shades of buttons you want. I also need to know the letter or shape.
