Retro

The other day I was sorting through my buttons, as I so lovingly and obsessively compulsively do from time to time, and I came across this really beautiful large retro style lime green button. It was like bliss, or maybe fate, well whatever it was it motivated me and this is what resulted from it;


To see more check it out in my shop.

I finally got up the nerve to cut into the outrageously expensive quilting fabric that I allowed myself to indulge in. I like to buy fabrics that are beautiful and durable, but also economically priced (which means I can sell my handbags for a little cheaper then some others to help those who’re seeking beautiful items within their budget). But, last summer I visited this high quality, high priced quilting specialty store, and forked out more money then I really ‘wanted’ to on some really indulgent fabrics. I’m not sure how an individual with a quilting hobby can manage to maintain it financially.

But, that said, after seeing this fabric used in this finished product I’m happy I had it in my stock. I hope someone on Etsy loves it just as much.

How gorgeous!!
And what a great price, too. :)

That button is so fun, and it goes perfectly with that fabric. I love green anyways, though...

Hello Crysto, thank you for the comments on my journal. I see you are in Newfoundland.

I can relate to the button thing and was doing the same thing the other day. :)

I love your bags, btw.
