What was your inspiration?
I needed stitch markers, and the ones I purchased from the local chain craft store broke the first time I tried to use them.
What are you most proud of?
That I was able to produce cute, functional markers easily, and for less money than I spent on the original commercially-produced markers.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Pick out some cute buttons or beads and give it a try. And if you use wire to assemble, make sure all of your wire ends are tucked in!
