Button Up!

Just in time for spring -- a cute little necklace that will add a pop of color to casual tees -- and what better material for a sewist to use than buttons?

I happened to see this little project while catching up on some sewing blogs. Directions are available at Craft Stylish, "Make a Button Link Necklace..." by Susan Beal. It's quick and easy, and not too expensive -- most of us probably have the buttons on hand already! Add some split rings (in two sizes) a small amount of chain and a fastener and you'll have a cute little necklace. It's not Bulgari, but who needs that heavy stuff in the Spring!

And for something completely different -- how about a dog on a rug? See how nicely he blends with the decor?
