This bowl has been embellished with vintage buttons, hand sewed around rim. A few beads were also added. This basket is practice for the special vintage and antique glass buttons I am saving for special piece.
My first attempt at creating a lid turned out quite nice
Lid has two extra coils hand sewn on top of finished lid, bottom. First coil was machine stitched but stiching flattened the coil too much. The basket edge did not catch the lid so the fit was not good. Adding the second coil by hand stitching, adjusted the coil to fit, and held lid tighter.
Kasen's basket made from left overs of his first baby quilt.
Leftover black and white fabric on small basket. Embellished with one of my hand made red ceramic buttons and an interesting vintage pearl button. I think this will be special for the guest/ kid room in our new condo. Multi color yellow, black, and reddish basket was vase shaped and self embellished...that too is a great finish if nothing special is available. These baskets are truly addicting....
Saw this on Pinterest....thought it would be perfect for my daughter...acrylic and watercolor on canvas board.
