Pinkeep with Buttons

Thanks to a very smart idea from Harmien, I placed the buttons on the pinkeep corners and took a picture. I think I like how it looks - it makes the monochromatic theme more interesting. Should I get out my tacky glue?

The buttons look good. If you want to make it look as though they are stitched on - thread up a needle - go from back of button to front and then through the second hole to the back - repeat and then tie off the two ends at the back of the button - trim ends so they will lie behind the button and then lightly glue the buttons onto the pinkeep. Love the pattern.

I think they look great! And Carol's idea about threading the buttons sounds good too!

Love the buttons, and the pinkeep, very cute! And you should definately post it on the MFC! And wow, that backing fabric is gorgeous!!!

As for the scissors, whatever works is good enough :) But I ADORE scissors, in my opinion stitching's only half the fun~~the other half is all the gadgets and goodies!!! LOL, there's a reason my blog has 'stash' in the name ;)

Love the buttons on it. Like the idea of the thread on the buttons. Be careful with the glue so you don't get more spots.

Forgot to mention in last comment that traditionally Gingher scissors are one of the top scissors. My mother always prided herself in having gingher sewing shears. I do a lot of stitching away from home and I don't take my ginghers with me. Don't want to lose them, but they are nice scissors. Cut silk threads better than my cheap Joann's scissors. I have some of those too.

I also am in love with the JBW designs. I have done 3 as shop models and one for myself.
