My Badges

As promised in my last post, I’m going to do a quick ‘show and tell’ of the badges I made using my ‘Button Factory’ kit. 

I attached the fabric to the badges, then thought I could make them even cuter by sticking a teeny-tiny button on each one.  You know me and buttons!!!

Here they are close-up:

My favourite’s the orange and white spotty one with the turquoise button (in the top photo).  Which one do you like best?

Making them was such a lot of fun!  The only problem is.....  I got a bit carried away and I’ve run out of metal badge bits already.  If anyone knows where I can get some more from, please let me know..... 

Just before I go, I want to excuse myself a bit.  I know I haven't been posting as regularly as I usually do over the past few weeks.  We've been having issues with the screen of our laptop (it doesn't work any more)..... we tried to get it fixed but couldn't, trying to make do using the laptop attached to another screen, got very frustrated, away visiting family, bought a new laptop, can't put 'Word' and all that useful stuff on it until we get home, need to sort something out for editing photos on it.....  So, we're all a bit up-in-the-air with computer things at the moment.  Hopefully, everything will be sorted out soon and I'll be able to get back to my normal routine of posting and visiting you all more regularly.  Until then, please forgive me and keep on stopping by to say "hello"!

    Your bottoms are amazing. I would like to learn how to make that

  5. They are all sooo lovely! Can't believe you ran out already, are you addicted to making badges or something?

  6. Really difficult to decide, but my favourite has to be first pic of three, top left. They're lovely, I do hope you can track down the bits to make some more :D

  8. Carly, thank you for sharing your cute badges with us :o) They are so sweet! Love all of them!
    Lot of love

  9. Too stinkin' cute!! I can't pick a favorite... it's a tie between the yellow/grey, blue/red and blue/orange combos haha!
    Have you checked etsy for them? I think that's where my sister has bought them from before... I will see if I can find what seller she got them from.

    Hope you have a great week!

  10. They are SO cute! The added buttons definitely make them look more colourful (I am a sucker for buttons too!!)... My faves are the polka dot ones for sure... Love them!!!

    Have a great week lovely!
