These are always popular at this time of year. This batch is made with pink sparkly clay. The small buttons are 2cm x 2cm and cost 50p each. The larger ones are 1/2cm bigger in each direction and cost 70p each. They are perfect for that handcrafted Mother's Day gift whether it's knitted, crocheted or sewn. I can also supply them without holes. The embossed words read #mother #kind #strong #beautiful #thoughtful #unselfish #bestfriend #special and #devoted.
They can be any colour or shape. Just get in touch if you have a request :)
This week's project for the "52 Weekly Cane Projects" continues the face theme. The task this time was to construct a man's face. The tutorial was written specially for the group by Isabelle Vacher . The cane on the left is the packed cane before reduction. The reduced cane is on the right. I have over 6" of this cane, and will have to put my thinking cap on to come up with some ideas on how to use it.
This online group started in Jan 2014, and we have just started Year 2. Each month is a different theme, and within the month there is a different cane each week. January 2015's theme is "faces". So far we have had a sheep cane and a face cane.
I have used the sheep cane so far to make buttons
and shawl pins plus a little trinket bowl.
If you are planning your first craft fair, or want to improve the look of your packaging, then you should think about using personalised stickers like these from DiscountBannerPrinting.co.uk
When I first set up Esme's Buttons in 2013, these were the first little stickers I sent off for. I liked the fact that they had MY logo on a little clear rectangle, and I have been back for more. I use them on everything from luggage labels to which I have sewn buttons to labels on my craft table, to mailing envelopes being sent out to customers. They are very good quality, and I take a roll with me to all events we attend .
On the website we now have a 'members' page. If you register/log in, this page becomes visible to you. Each month we are running giveaways/competitions/special offers. Once you apply, I will need to add your name to the members' list before you can access that page. This is to say thank you to our customers/fans. xx
