Just for fun

What are you most proud of? It was a 'just for fun' project while we were setting up me new sewing room. I needed to do something (do you know the feeling??) to prevent me from eating a kilo of chocolates haha It was fun turning something boring into something cute. Little Monkey will not leave these shoes alone now hahaha I suspect she has a thing for buttons, too ;) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Little cute things are fun to make :)

You Can Make This

Q&A with Jenya

VicMansfield asked:
Too cute - I saw a heaps of shoes covered with buttons for sale at some markets in Brisbane recently and have been thinking I should do something with my box of buttons just like this! They look great! My girls love buttons too - my button box is a regular treat for them to play with! :)
Jenya answered:
Hahaha When we set up our Art & craft room I finally got to sort my buttons out according to colours - Little Monkey was sooo keen to help! A little too keen, really, so I allocated a few gigantic buttins and a jar for her, and she has not parted with them since :) Girls and buttons - whatever makes us happy :) Hope you are well and crafting away :)
