I read and article in this months Sew Hip and was inspired to cover some buttons from some scraps. I found that it is not as easy as it looks but if you can get the right bit of fabric they look good. I used one to make a little flower for the bag (and yes, the 'palaver bag' has now had it's flap reversed...don't ask, just more palaver!).
On a flowery note, the calendula are looking really bright and cheerful amongst the veg' at the moment. I love them because they are sooo easy to grow, they self seed, they can be picked and plonked in a jam jar (the total of my flower arranging skills!!), and I like to scatter some petals on a salad. And to top it all they take a good photo.
