Pattern BUTTON BOUQUETS by Pat Olski for Inspiration Studios, Featuring Dorset Button and Cross Stitch Embroidery
Beautiful Dorset buttons enhance a pincushion and tape measure cover worked with timeless cross stitch.
Inspirations Studios describe this project:
"Drawing on the ingenuity of past generations for inspiration, the dainty, embellished rings that decorate this pincushion and tape measure cover are worked with techniques
developed to create Dorset buttons in the 19th century.
Pretty bunches of knotted flowers in blue and white sit within the covered rings and each button is attached to a background of natural linen that is further embellished with cross stitch."
