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: www.scrapincovers.etsy.com.
