I don't remember when was the last time that I purchased a gift for someone.
I create gifts for everyone. My go to gift on the holidays is a zippered pouch in the preferred colors of the recipient, with a surprise inside.
The surprise could be a folded fabric tote bag, a fabric wallet with compartments and a zipper, a set of fabric coasters or even some jewelry.
The jewelry could be made from some of my handmade fabric beads or it could be a button bracelet or necklace.
A very good friend who is fond of all things blue, turquoise and ocean has a birthday coming up so I decided to make her a button necklace with some matchiing earrings.
Today was a button sorting day so I ended up going through the turquoise and blues box.
Ocean has blues and greens and turquoise as well as some sandy colors. The trick is to create a mix that is pleasing to the eye.
Choosing buttons for the earrings.
I think I will make her 2 pairs, one green and one turquosie.
And her daughter will also get a necklace.
To hers I will add some beads as well as buttons.
