an august workshop for you...
I finished up this August workshop project two days ago, and it took everything in me to wait until today to post it. I get far too excited about these kinds of things.
August's Make. Do. Create. crafty characters are the Extra Buttons. In the PDF you'll find instructions for making Button Buddies, a great use for your extra buttons! The workshop includes six woodland animal patterns: Hedgehog, Rabbit, Owl, Chipmunk (or perhaps Skunk, depending on your color choices), Bear and Raccoon. They are sized for 1 inch buttons, but you could enlarge or reduce if you want.
I'm sure you'll find all kinds of fun places to stitch these up...remember, you can add your photos to the Wild Olive Flickr group!
