I always need new boxes to store the different materials I collect. If you have followed this blog you know that I often use recycled/upcycled materials. When I upcycle a piece of cloth I try to use all of it, not only the part which I need here and now. Therefore I always save the buttons for future projects. By now there is quite a lot of buttons in all different shapes and colours – and a new button box is ugently needed.
The box used was originally a telephone box. The embroidery is a white Christmas rose which is sewn on dark blue jeans fabric. I embroidered the rose last summer while practicing different types of stitches. I like the rose quite a lot but I never found the right thing to use it for. Now the rose embroidery is decorating my new button box where it fits perfectly.
