Corsages of course

Last November my Nan (92 & still keeping well!), gave me a huge old biscuit tin of buttons which she had saved for me.  I am sure quite a lot of the buttons even pre-date my arrival in the world!  I have been stitching corsages both to list on ebay/etsy and also to take along to a craft fair at the end of this month and of course, these buttons make great corsage centres.  I have designed the corsages using petal shapes from some of my vintage 30s and 40s needlecraft books - a mixture of vintage textiles and modern felts which I like.  Lots of other sewing at the moment - gadget cosies, tea cosies, little love hearts, tiny boot & bird decorations - so apologies for lack of posts.  Some photos of my makes follow.  Hope everyone is well.

  1. Ooooh, very pretty corsages. How nice for your grandma to give you those buttons.

  2. I know, she was as proud as if she had given me a tin of rubies!
