button flowers.

buttons. love them.

one of my 30 before 30 items was to complete a diy craft/project that was ‘blog post worthy’ but I also wanted it to be ‘hang up in the house worthy’ too. 

When I found this pin on pinterest, I knew that’s exactly what I wanted to make.  The flowers made me think of my family, the embroidery hoop made me think of my grammie and the simplicity really just spoke to me. pinterest

I followed Leigh-Ann’s steps completely – I can’t say I really did anything differently other than use the same color thread for all the stems.  [must say, I think I like her idea of different colors better than my green]  Oh, and of course, the fabric color I chose was different.

I had fun picking out the buttons for the flowers and the kids had fun helping me sort drop the buttons on the floor!

Overall, I’m happy with the turn out.  It’s simple and plain but meaningful.

#17. complete a DIY project that’s blog post worthy. – DONE!!!
