JABC Stitch School: How to make a Button Buddy
This week on Instagram and Facebook we're having a Button Buddy Bonanza -- we're introducing you to our collection of Button Buddy pincushions and putting a few of our favorites in the spotlight. We also have a sale on Button Buddy patterns... more on that in a moment.
As part of our Button Buddy Bonanza, we are bringing you a new episode in our Stitch School video series. In the video below, I'll show you how to make a Button Buddy!
But first, let me tell you what a Button Buddy is...
Button Buddies are fun petite-sized pincushions that are packed with personality! We combine a felted-wool ball with handmade buttons for features, a few bits of felted-wool for details, and a hand-dyed button for a base. All combined, these elements create a tiny pincushion that is fun to sit on your sewing table and display your favorite Just Pins and Pin-Mini sets!
