I hate waste, especially if it can be avoided.
Sometimes crafting can be a bit of a tricky ground as the craft supply industry seems intent on getting us to buy more and more stuff.
However, I like to try and re-use as much as possible or at least find new uses for things whenever I can.
Since making the fabric flower brooches, I'd collected a bag of fabric scraps that were not big enough to use for the flowers but I didn't want to throw them out.
Trying to find something to do with them was taxing my brain slightly - I'm not particularly interested in sewing. Making the flowers was really the extent of my sewing capabilities so I needed to find something else.
Eventually I found something suitable - so am happy now to announce that I am making fabric covered buttons!!!!
OK, maybe not worth a fanfare but I'm quite pleased with them and at least its a bit less fabric ending up in the bin.
You can find them for sale here
At the moment they come in two sizes but I will add some other sizes if they prove popular.
As always proceeds will be going to my 2 good causes AMMF and WCSUK
