Brooches and Pins


Sometimes, a store-bought button or pin will not work for a handmade item such as the vest I knitted recently. This afternoon, I had some fun working with air-dry polymer and a project guide from Sherrill Kahn's site. When they dry, I will paint them and decide if any two of them will coordinate well with the vest.

Wow. You have been very creative lately. Can't wait to see both projects when they are finished.

You are simply one of the most talented women I know, Margaret ;) Can't wait to see how these turn out!

You are all so kind. I took the vest and 2 finished buttons to a knitting retreat this weekend and, like always, was inspired by the ladies there and what they are doing. Next time, I plan to press yarn and beads into the clay.
