in the studio: new button maker

I love receiving deliveries at the studio, especially when what is being delivered is something I have been waiting for to make a new product. Today I received my new button maker and I am very excited about the few I already made today.
The sew-on buttons I made in the fall were very well received, both on the hats and sold individually at the One of a Kind Show. Not everyone is keen on having to sew on a button though, so I will be making these pin-back buttons for the Spring One of Kind Show and may have some available online too. I will probably continue making the sew-on buttons as well. I think replacing boring buttons that come on clothing with handmade or vintage ones can look pretty great.

I am especially liking the simplicity of the blue and green buttons shown above. The leafy branches are sections from my spring 09 'forest' pattern.

Your photo of the feather is beautiful! Who knew nature could be so perfect in its design.
