PTI Blog Hop!


It's time for another PTI blog hop! For this month, we've been challenged to use buttons. Right now, I'm caught up on cards (shocker, I know!), so I figured that I'd do a home project. I loved my Lucky pillow I made a few weeks ago and had an idea to make another one that included buttons.


I decided to use a base of spare muslin I have as the base. The green is the bottom part of my curtains I cut off when I hung them on our sliding glass doors. They're also the same ones in my family room. I sewed on 7 True Black buttons with Ecru embroidery floss.

This was a fun project and shows that you can do something different with those larger buttons that come in the packs of PTI Vintage buttons.
