Messenger Bag with Embroidered Table Runner

Thrifting Thursday - Messenger Bag with Embroidered Table Runner

I found this adorable table runner while cleaning up my Mother In Law’s house a couple of weekends ago. For some reason she had only worked half of it and then put it away to never be worked on again.

I felt bad cutting it up but it didn’t quite fit on the front of this messenger bag. So I cut it to fit and then cut the lace from the edge and sewed it back on. Same thing…only smaller.

I sewed a small heart shaped doily to the lower corner and embellished it with buttons from a Button Bonanza bag in Bubblegum. Finally, I stitched again around the outside edge of the heart with pink embroidery floss and put embroidery floss through a couple of the buttons.

I haven’t decided if it’s finished or not. I’ll have to sit with it for a day or two and decided if I need to add anything more.

What do you think? Is it finished? If not what would you add?

Between all my kids, the house is always filled with someone’s clothes that don’t fit anymore. With hand-me-downs, the boys have had a great selection of new clothes in every size, but my daughter isn’t about to get excited over monster truck t-shirts unless that have bling in sparkly pink and purple. However, with a little creativity, we can turn any rough, tough boy-wear to fabulous girly in no time!

Isn’t this little party dress adorable? I love the way the colors of the buttons echo the polka dots in the bottom.

Oh! And those cheeks! How could a mommy not spend all day kissing those cheeks!

Child’s Button Embroidery Sampler

Do you remember how much you loved to sift through your mom, aunt, or grandmother’s button boxes? I still play with my buttons all the time, and I know I can always keep my five year old daughter busy with buttons. I recently came up with a project that takes button play beyond just looking at buttons, but also uses them as a creative tool. The end result is a darling little sampler of all my daughter’s favorite buttons and artwork. It’s truly an heirloom piece that will be cherished for years to come. Here’s how to make a button embroidery sampler with your child.

Yo Yo and Button Project Ideas

Yo Yos and buttons seem to be made for one another. I recently made a few projects with yo yos using the Clover Yo Yo makers and our beautiful buttons.

I do have a little confession to make… I had never made a yo yo before. True story. But the yo yo maker was soooo easy and if I had a yo yo that didn’t look “just right” adding a button to it made it look fine. My good yo yos looked even better with a button.

I covered the headband above with fabric and then covered the seam with some grosgrain ribbon. Finally I attached a yo yo made with coordinating fabric and topped it off with a button. Super cute hair accessory in about 20 minutes. Seriously.

I love this mini tote with a doily, yo yo and button. Wouldn’t it make a great gift bag?

Yo Yos and Buttons go together like peanut butter and jelly. Don’t you think?

I used Fabri-Tac to glue the buttons on but you could definately sew them on.

I like the monochromatic look of the Natural Buttons but you could easily make this in soooo many colors. And because the bag is cotton it could be dyed to match any of our buttons.

What color would you make?
