I was feeling rather unspired for my fourth set of ornaments for the ornament exchange. My commitment to only using items I already had on hand was contemplating things. Finally, after sewing some dresses for my daughters, my eyes fell upon some navy velvet scraps, and I came up with the idea for my last set of ornaments. The velvet was given to me by another member of our attachment parenting group. Her mother no longer wanted the fabric and I knew some day it would make lovely dresses. I used antique buttons, given to me by another member, who was parting with her grandmother’s button stash. Most of the buttons I used are white or silver, but this heart has an antique star on it. I’ll be keeping this one for our family.
