It's been a rainy dull day here so to keep Bethany & I busy I pulled out my button tin. She loves looking at all the colours and picking out her favourites. She asked me if we could make a necklace so I thought I'd give it a go. These are the buttons Beth picked out - interesting mix eh?
As I was making the necklace for a child, I decided to use shirring elastic threaded on a large needle. I've never made a necklace before so I was kind of making it up as I went along. I stitched through each set of holes twice to make sure the buttons were secure. At the end I went through the first button again to finish the circle.
