A glimpse of what the fashionable button bouquet is wearing this season...

We're getting ready for our next show - and I had to do a new batch of vintage button bouquets and pincushions.  This is my favorite button bouquet.  I had a pint bottle that was begging to be used - and I had bought a bunch of patterns at a local thrift store - lots of very fashionable outfits...70s, 80s...(you know, stuff we - or I should say "some of us" used to wear...).  I tore the covers off and rolled them up and slipped them (one at a time) into the bottle, and used a knitting needle to "kind of" place them, and then I'd add another - until I couldn't get anymore in...  So, from all four sides, there are cute pattern girls peering through the glass.  They're packed in there pretty well and shouldn't move.  And, then I finished it off with some large stacked button stems. 

I think I'll have to do some more of these - for the next show!
