Etsy Inspired Challenge #91: A YourStory Cover

When I saw this weeks shop for the Etsy Inspired Blog, I knew immediately what I wanted to make. The shop is called Howbeadyful and she makes the most wonderful fabric covered buttons. It was hard to pick just one for inspiration, so I may have to consider entering more than once this week! Here is my inspiration item: a bottle of blue buttons.
I love all things dark blue! You know, cobalt, midnight, navy, the darker the better. I created a pattern for the YourStory awhile ago, but life is busy and I had not gotten around to sewing a first sample. So, this challenge was my excuse to get sewing. I think I started sewing dust covers, in part to use my wonderful collection of buttons. I have so many wonderful shank buttons that are just to bulky to fit on the page, and I am afraid to cut the shank off some of my vintage one. So, here is my entry in the challenge, a dust cover for the YourStory machine, and yes, it is available at my Etsy store:


  1. Love the buttons and blue is one of my favorite colors to!! TFS!

  2. WOW!! Your very CREATIVE! Nice blog too.
    Cricaholic from the MB came by and said HI! I'm a follower too.

  3. OMG this is soooo amazing! I love that you created this for the challenge this week! Wish I had something I could cover this with! LOL!

    Thanks for playing EtsyInspired this week!
