This was yesterday's experiment. I had wanted a button or cabachon for a lily of the valley block I am doing in a round robin and, of course, could not find anything like that in the stash. I did manage to find a picture I liked on the internet and printed it out very small. I took a large-ish plastic button, about the size of a quarter, and used white glue to attach the picture to the flat back of the button. The picture is just on regular paper, by the way, not photo paper and it was printed on my regular inkjet printer. At this point I used E-6000 to glue the front of the button to some firm cotton fabric so I would be able to attach it to the block. Next I looked for advice from the girls at CQI and another group of friends to see what I could use to give the picture a glassy finish and avoid the ink running during the process. They had wonderful ideas to share with me but in the end I went with what I could find around the house since most of my stash is packed away
I have lots of posts on embroidery, needlework and crazy quilting. Right now, in the time of Covid pandemic, my interests have turned to living frugally, gardening, cooking, etc. A regular Suzie Homemaker!
