I had this BLAHzey black crocheted back that needed some perking up, but I wanted it to be a little quirky and still classy, a perfect fit for those Buttons Galore & More! 

I had plans of adding stems with green rick rack, but after I completed one, it just ruined the "classy" so I removed it.  This is an easy way to add a pop of color and whimsy to something just a bit too boring.

SUPPLIES:  Fabric flowers, 3 lime green buttons by Buttons Galore & More, Black embroidery thread, 8 ply cotton, large hole needle, and your drab garment or bag.

1. Use all 8 plies of the thread.
2. Remove the center of fabric flowers, use two layers of flowers behind each button.
3. Sew the button and flowers to the garment using a cris-cross only once, tie off on the inside of the bag.
4. Be mindful of placement and adjust as necessary when sewing.

  1. Great, easy peezy project. Love it!

  2. Love this idea. I think I'll use it on my new flip flops!

  3. Never thought about using a black bag for spring, but the addition of the bright flowers makes it perfect!
