PTI felt and button embellishments

Last week I saw this post by Kristen on the PTI message board. I thought these embellies were darling and wanted to try my hand at them. I cut the NEW PTI black felt with my Big Kick and an old Sizzix die into circles, found some PTI buttons, raided my floss stash for some matching colors and did these while watching tv one night. It was so fun and easy! I added a blanket stitch to the edges.....haven't done THAT stitch in a looong time. It took me a while to get used to it again. I am pretty happy with the way they turned out...




Thanks for looking....and thanks Kristen for the link!

Your stitching is just perfect! I need to try to remember how to do a blanketstitch. What fun embellishments you've created. I love how the black felt really makes the color pop.

What a fantastic job on this challenge. I love the embellishments!!! The buttons look so striking on the black felt. Didn't buy the black, but the more I see it I think I should put that in my cart.
