Embroidered Button Pendant


I told you I wasn’t quite through making these. I can think of twenty other things I’d like to do with a covered button, just right off the top of my head, right now. This one is a 1” diameter flat cover-your-own button (mine was vintage, but you can still get these in the fabric store.) I covered it with a scrap of oatmeal linen and stitched this little flower. The cord is a piece of 1/8” sheer organza ribbon—I glued a clasp on it and everything, but for the next one, I’m thinking of just leaving it longer and tying it.


Gosh, a girl could just go on and on. The blue one at the bottom is a little corner of a very precious piece of vintage cotton that I am pretty hesitant about using up.


It seems to me you could have a different one of these for every day of the week!
