Ice DropThistle


This is a little 1/2 inch, pretty plastic button.  The pattern is taken from this book below
the top  right one is the exact pattern on page 55 and the drop is the same pattern
just make 2 center rings for every one ring.  Then  leave out the second set of rings
at very top by the flower.
I pinned out and sprayed with water.
Below is a picot gauge made from card stock.


I forgot to show how I frayed the thistle but you just use a pin and separate the strands. I did a water just to the tips of thread. and start separating at the tops of the thread.
And yes I got my Ice drop Addicts shuttle too!
Thank you Rita! Shuttle by Design

This is before you snip them apart! and you don't have to :)
See if you have a pattern that would work to hold a center piece in!

  5. Beautiful! I do like looking at patterns to see if they're adaptable as Ice Drops. However, I've been too lazy to follow patterns lately!
