One of the thing I love about the techniques I shared in Fanciful Utility is that they can be used for so many projects. This time of year, FanU is great for fun, festive projects. For the next few weeks, I am going to share some of the ways FanU gets Festive.
Here is a favorite from a couple years ago that I would be remise if I didn’t share it again. The Button Keep Ornament Ornament. This colorful decoration was originally known as a “Balloon Bag” in A Girls Own Book, in 1833. Then it was used to hold buttons, a ball of string or possibly a thimble
As an ornament, this pretty combination can many gifty surprises…. candy…. jewelry ….small toys ….keys ….. tiny figurines…..
Make your keep up as simply or as fancy as you like. (It does work best with light weight fabrics with a strong weave.)
