Buttons and Napkins

Ali and I made it to the ASG Conference in Sacramento this past Sunday, and came home with a bevy of buttons. The selection was awesome, but I think I'll stick to thrift stores and yard sales from now on... vintage buttons are expensive!

Some of these buttons will go to my mom who uses them as clasps for her bracelets, and I might use some as clasps for making this bracelet.

I've cut out a set of napkins and place mats out of an old Ikea comforter cover. Now they're just waiting patiently by my sewing machine waiting to be hemmed up. I'm considering doing some embroidery on one side of the place mats, maybe with the same fabric I used to embroider these.
