I woke up with a migraine, feeling quite grumpy about that fact, and wondering if there was one simple thing I could do to cheer myself up a bit.
I have a bit of a ribbon obsession at the moment. And I also collect buttons. Most recently, I picked up some perspex and timber laser-cut buttons from the local Apron Design Market. And if you’ve read my Buddy Rug post, you’ll know about my ribbon jar.
So I got some supplies and started making a cuff of sorts. Sewing scissors (nice and sharp they should be – mine are not), ribbon, button.
I cut and threaded the ribbon. I will need to get some sort of ‘fray-stop’ to add to the edges at some point, but today is not that day.
Although I think the little double knot looks quite cute,
I would say it would be a good idea to hem and add press-studs (snap-fasteners) instead of tying. Today is not that day either.
But that’s for another day. Right now it’s time for a cup of tea.
