Inspiration
Here's some crafty inspiration for you on a Thursday morning. The vintage embroidered buttons are wonderful - it would be so fun to have one of these on a favourite sweater. The origami lotus flowers are so cool I saw lots of these in Toronto in China town last week made out of vintage candy wrappers.

you know me and embroidery! love, love, love! i thought about making some buttons with embroidered pieces but i'm so afraid to stick my work in the button press!

I love the buttons too!
But, I need to get serious again about origami, I was hooked a few years ago. But now I do it only if I need a present or have to try something.

I just picked up a encyclopedia of stitches....and was mulling over some ideas in the back of my head, and these little bits of inspiration have moved me further along the path....perhaps it's time to do some more clothing...very hush hush season will soon be upon us :)

The buttons are so cute. How are you with a needle to do some Cartolina ones??
