Button Flower

I keep forgetting to show you this!
A few months ago, Virginia stumbled upon a button with a flower embroidered in it on a flickr site.
After much searching, she found the blogger here!
I couldn't share until she sent a bunch out as RAKs!
But I found my stash of them that I had promptly sat down and made and thought I'd show you!
Virginia made the one on the blue and white fabric as my "starter button".
I think you can figure it out... you need a button with 4 holes!
Show me what you make!

Those are adorable. I can figure out the leaves but I don't know how you did the flower. I think it is a stitch I don't know!

These button creations are wonderful! Treasures! I know a sweater of mine that is simply dying to wear all of hers likewise. Thank you indeed for such a lovely idea!

Hmm. Now where did I stash the sewing basket...?

The buttons are so cute. I really love them. I will give it a try over the weekend. First, I need to look through my button collection to choose the right buttons to make "button flowers." Thanks!
