A quick post today. I've made some progress toward ornamentifying this afternoon. Today I sewed on the teeniest buttons. I found these unexpectedly at Hobby Lobby last Saturday and was thrilled to discover they fit this project! This has been languishing in my finished bin wanting buttons. I stitched this last year but did it over one, not thinking it needed buttons and even the smallest I had were way too big. I could have used beads but I really, really wanted buttons. I'm so glad I waited!
After I sewed on the buttons and chose a backing fabric (green & tan gingham) I ironed lightweight interfacing on both pieces. Maybe tomorrow I will have time to sew it together.
For those that have asked, this is Plum Berry Sampler from Bent Creek. Yes, if you open that link you will see mine looks very little like the original. I modified the colors and gave the birdie a top-knot to make this into a Christmas design.
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
Love your changes. ~~ Christie
So pretty!!! )BTW, "ornamentation" is my new favorite word!!!) LOL
Im liking it
isnt it fun stitching larger patterns over one to create ornaments.
Adorable! It's amazing the things you can find when you wonder HL's aisles, lol!!! Usually it's things I don't need!!!
It looks great! I am so glad that you found the buttons.
I love it! I love how tiny it is, and I definitely love your changes to the birdie!

I love the changes you made in this and love the tiny little buttons too. I enjoyed your last two very informative posts as well. I am like you - I can't get the "right" and "wrong" way of floss. This is supposed to be fun, right?
That is such a gorgeous finish - the buttons are perfect.
It is gorgeous and those buttons are simply perfect for it. Can not wait to see it ornimentfied!

There are some things just working for, aren't there? Your ornie is absolutely beautiful.
Great find, its hard sometimes to find just the right item and then when you are not looking there it is!
It's such a great feeling to find just the perfect buttons, trim, or ribbon to finish off an ornament, isn't it? Adorable finish, Sharon!
That looks lovely Sharon. Love the changes you made.
Thank you for the fabby tutorial. Love the way it turned out so hoping to have a go myself one day.
The buttons were definitely worth the wait. I love it!
