DIY Button Earring Kit - Citrus Spring

With spring only a few weeks away I was inspired to create a little kit with fresh spring colours and this is what evolved.  A little kit that will fit in your purse which makes up 12 pairs of earrings that are 12mm in size.  I'm thinking that I will make up some more of these kits in different colour ways.  You can find earring kit listed in my shop along with all the details DIY Button Earring Kit Citrus Spring

Botanical Buttons Project

I have been working on a new DIY button project, this has been on the desk for a few weeks.  It will be sold as a kit, just needs a few more tweaks before it's ready.  I will have this available in the shop, and the kit will include a linen panel with the botanical prints and the basic components required to make up the buttons.  The buttons measure 1.5 inch and the level of detail will be up to you, just some very simple stitching is all you need know.

Little Fabric Envelope PDF Pattern

I have posted these little fabric envelopes before, but I decided to revamp the pattern and some of the photos before I listed them in my etsy shop lovelui.  What I thought was going to be a 2 hour todo list item turned out to be a 3 week event of endurance.  Taking photos in winter is not easy, as I have a small window of opportunity in the morning to do this and converting files into PDF format was a whole new area of exploration.  But I am pretty happy with the end result and learned lots along the way.  In the top photo the  envelopes were made using a selection of Liberty of London fabrics.
