The Sweet Things in Life

Free instructions from Just Another Button Company!

 

 

As February approaches, stores tempt you with a red and pink bonanza of Valentine greetings–cards, candy, gifts and flowers.  Where do you look if you want a special Valentine treat for a friend who appreciates your creative talents?  Just Another Button Company has lots of ideas, and here’s a great one!

This is a special Valentine gift for YOU from Just Another Button Company–free instructions for Sweet Treat, a quick-and-easy pincushion in an ice cream cup.  You eat the ice cream first–tough job, but someone’s got to do it!  Roll strips of wool to fill the cup then top with our Just Pins.  A stitch here and there helps hold the layers together as you roll, but you could actually make this pincushion with no sewing if you want.

Believer in sharing the SWEET!

by Cecile McPeak

Cecile McPeak learned to sew, craft, and "measure twice, cut once" from her creative parents, and she's proud to note that all three of her grown children are continuing the crafty family tradition. Part of the pleasure of her brand of creating is arranging a collection of inspiring materials--everything from old wooden spools and buttons to found objects, shells, stones, and sea glass. Someday these things might become part of a project, but in the meantime, they inspire creative thought. Cecile feels fortunate to be part of the needle-arts industry as Founder and Creative Director of Just Another Button Company, a manufacturer of handmade polymer-clay buttons and pins. The buttons first appeared as ladybugs and bees on Cecile's silk-ribbon embroidery, and then gained popularity as whimsical embellishments by being featured in cross-stitching and quilting books from popular designers. Now Cecile leads the JABC team in creating new buttons plus cross-sitch designs, quilt patterns, and dozens of pincushion kits and patterns.
