The buttons are beautiful. They are made from porcelain so they are very sturdy and hard wearing, you can wash them in the washing machine, they will not break, and will not fade in colour. They are very very pretty and make you smile (O:
These are a few of the many projects I want to finish this year.
With the fabric on the right I made my first project. An apron. The first apron I ever made. I had planned it differently, but the red fabric is very stiff (even after machine washing), so I was unable to gather it evenly. It looks very squarish on the picture, but if you put it on it's very nice!
I made this apron for Kathy, from Pink Chalk Fabrics, who send me my first fabric order from abroad. Since it didn't arrive after 6 weeks, she send it again. That package took only one week. Finally after about 12 weeks, the first package arrived. I wanted to pay Kathy for the extra order, but she wouldn't let me. So, I don't know why I decided on making an apron and not something else, but it was the first thing that came into my mind.
