Inspired Felt Buttons
Even knowing that I would be attaching these to some upcoming nuno-felted pieces with beads, other buttons, and some perle cotton didn't help...I was not inspired!
I had gone through all my containers of smaller felt pieces looking for ones that were at least 1 1/2 to 2 inches wide. If the piece wasn't big enough for at least 3 buttons, back in the container it went. Okay, the plain red ones, the plain fuchsia ones, the plain ochre ones...
Wait, what are these narrow multi-color pieces? They're not wide enough for circles, but what if I cut them into narrow strips (mine were about a half an inch wide), put a little glue on them and rolled them up like a pinwheel? Pin them until they're dry. Oh, yeah!
