Brick and Buttons

As you know, I love beading around in circles, I love brick stitch, and I have a huge stash of my Gram's buttons.  So.....





I am finding that I like 4 holes better than two and that a simple pattern is better than a more complex one.

Most of these are headed to Lyn Carey's shop Earth and Wears ~ where Handmade Lovelies peek out of every little nook and cranny!  If you are ever in the area, do go there ~ you will be oh so glad you did!

I made a few of these in November to see if they would sell at Earth and Wears and they did!  Yay!  So I figured I better make some more :-)

These are beautiful, Christine! I love that you sewed into the holes. Really a very cool idea! I may have to "borrow" it with some of the buttons in my stash.
Stay warm this weekend.

I love the designs the threads make on the buttons. That has to be one of the best uses of buttons I've ever seen!!!

I love these, Christine! The patterns that the colored thread make are really cool. Kinda reminds me of playing with Spirographs as a kid. Great job!

oh I love when you bead in circles! and these are all so wonderful! I catch myself trying to figure out the pattern of the stitching ... but then you know I bead with fireline, and that likely wouldn't have the effect you've got here! LOL
