The buttons are on this little piece and they were not as easy to attach as I thought. Putting ribbon through the shank turned out to be impossible, so I had to attach to my stabilizer with lots of tiny stitches around and through. Seems to hold all right and it’s a wall hanging, so it should be fine.
Then I started to add beads to the rest of the piece. I thought a simple echo of the lines on the fabric would be perfect. Started the lines and began to have second thoughts, so I placed lines of beads to help me decide.
Not gonna happen! The lines of beads are overwhelming the buttons! What to do now? Does it need anything besides the buttons? Hmmm…
I’m going to try embroidery floss and hand stitching. Same lines down the piece and same colors, with maybe one of those little beads here and there for a spark.
