Button heart hoop

Hey! Yesterday I made this cute little hoop for the Harry Potter Craft-a-long Transfiguration project, and today I took a ridiculous amount of photos of it ~_^

The fabric that I used is from Spotlight, but I'm not sure what it's called; I brought it in a flat fats bundle.

I raided my button stash for lots of white and clear buttons, and I also added some pink to make it look a bit more interesting and also tie it in more to the fabric.

My favourite buttons are probably the interestingly shaped ones; the hearts, flowers, and kinda asterisk shaped buttons  ^_^

When I was arranging the buttons, I found that pins were a good way to keep them in place but also great because I could move everything around really easily.

To make this hoop, I drew a heart on my fabric with chalk, then added buttons around the edges before filling in the centre.

I hope you like it! I'm planning on doing some heavy duty crafting today; I'm getting out the power tools! ~_^

Have a great day!

I love the layers! I once bought a huge bag of white buttons to make a project with...and never did. Perhaps I will come across them and be inspired by you!

That would be cool! This really is a great project for using up button stashes ^_^
