December and January have been very busy. A small, portable project that I was working on in December was making some bound buttons (as per my photo tutorial here: https://broidermebethan.blogspot.com/2014/01/woven-button-tutorial-back-stitched.html ). I haven't put the final decorative decoration on; I will do them all at once.
It has been quite some time since I made this sort of button, and it took me a while to get back into the swing of it and get my speed up. A sturdy needle with a large eye really helps. I am using crochet cotton for these buttons. I've found that mercerised crochet cotton is the easiest to use if you can get it. I'd also like to try silk thread.
