This isn’t anything new. In fact, there are tutorials plastered all over the internet and lots of people selling covered button jewelry on Etsy. But, this is what I have been playing around with lately and I wanted to share. Not only have I made some fun stuff for myself, but I think I may join the legions and post some pieces for sale in my handmade Etsy shop, Kitsch Designs. I know, I know, boring….well, I have my reasons. For a long time now I have been trying to figure out the best way to use up all those itty-bitty little scraps of vintage fabric that just seem to precious to throw away. So far they have just been collecting dust in a box. I figure with barkcloth being so scarce any more I can’t get rid of even the smallest piece, right?
(This last one is an old quilter’s fabric with a printed log cabin design.)
Plus, there have to be others out there that love the idea of textile jewelry, but don’t see patterns that speak to them. I’m hoping some more Mid-Century Modern lovers will be happy to see these simple jewelry pieces in fabrics that work right into their retro way of life!
Happy Shopping folks!
