Go to Grandma's button box and choose a gorgeous old button that means something
special to you. Or, use buttons found in any fabric store. I used a Mill Hill
Treasure in the button space on these cute little babies, but there are many
substitutes. Be creative!
Change their hair and skin colors-it's easy to do-just look on some of my
other designs or on the website for the colors to use. The sweet little bangs
on their foreheads could be done in turkey stitch, if you wish. You can also
purchase curls in a variety of hair colors in craft stores to couch onto the
sides of the girl's face.
Make yours different from any other! Add small bows made out of narrow ribbon.
Archival glue is ideal for adding charms, gems, or other embellishments to
the finished design. Stitch on a piece of real lace or use other dimensional
stitches for borders.
These "Button Box Babies" are quick and easy, and you can create
them no matter what your skill level-just have fun with them!
