slow working

February 11, 2016

continuing with small projects

P1080289Dorset buttons – white cotton because they can be dyed as needed

three sizes – the tiny ones are Hitty size

P1080295what do you think, Kjerstin. will they fit in the Hitty sewing box?

the pin cushion on my loom is showing its age so time for a new one

and if you are going to make one might as well make two or three – right?

P1080298little things take time and care

on the loom

P1080283a top piece for the second workbag

the weft is a soft, thick and thin cotton, dyed in the indigo vat last summer

at least the Dornik twill is right this time.

    Lovely little creations. I have never learned to make Dorset buttons but have one you made on a boro book cover.

    I love the variety of things you turn your hands to. I didn’t know you made Dorset buttons and I’m just fascinated! And your pin cushions give me ideas for using some handwoven fabric that isn’t good for much else!

      Kerry – I’ve collected buttons since my childhood days with Mom’s button jar, recently taught several button classes and played with different styles. It’s good that you are thinking about how to use those odd bits of handwoven fabric, they add up!

    I especially like your posts with buttons – I took your class and loved it!

    They are so crisp and clean-looking. I never thought of dyeing them afterwards! If a button like that appeared in the Quimper Hitty sewing box, their human would make a garment specially to suit!
