Freshing our crafting skills ...

by taking a class in making Dorset Buttons.

Went to a class at Seed Stitch Fine Yarn and fell in love these buttons. It's our way of going Green and using up bit and bubbles of left-over yarn and floss. Most of us hate throwing anything way, but eventually we need something to do with it before our spouse (or family) throw us out. That's a personal dilemma for me anyway.
[hear the laughing in the background?]


So here's something to make with our little bits & pieces of left over yarn. And I'm all for using up every little bit. That's why I also needle felt pieces of wool. Even the bits I cut off of my projects. Anyway; the whole class enjoyed something "new" to do with our time and abundant skills. Here we are "perfecting our new found skill."

With the instructor; Jules Means.

And the class was full.

 

 

This is what I came up with below ...

Oh I must do more ... needle felt on some maybe?
