Pin-chick Picked Buttons again.

  
                             
                                    I saw it and just had to make it. I am a button collector too :) 



There's  more, I added a small pocket from an old shirt sleave and with right sides sewn together.....

When turned, now you see the back side, and I started this doily from the book "Tatting Mastery" page 100 it is a one shuttle pattern, which I think is my favorite kind of tatting. But making mistakes and not thrilled with the thread
so I decided to stop. It just happen to fit under the pocket.

Adding a stiff card stock or plastic helps stop needle when sewing it on :) 

I made another page and sewed this tab so another page or two on.

I am not finished cause I am not sure if to make this a little first aid kit tatting take along book or needle book :)

Most Items are recycled and the cross-stitching was even bought at yard sell too :)

    1. Thank you... Well funny you asked I am working on another Christmas tree and got this golden thread that doesn't tat up very well so I decide to just knot the red beads on the gold to use as garland for this next post 🎄 you are very observant.

  9. That's a bunch of crafts all rolled into one, I love your tree with the buttons and then making the pocket out of a pocket that's truly recycling at its best.
    Well done
