This week in the studio was more fiber arts, with a bit of sketching from time to time. I worked on my large punch needle piece, started a new temari inspired by the lights at the amusement park, and learned how to use this fabric button maker.

I had purchased this button maker for only $10 (with all related supplies!!!) from a resell shop.

Check out all these button shells and I got 4 different size punches for the press in there.

I started with a cross stitch cameo pin of our dog Rocket. I see a lot of potential uses....I might continue making cross stitch pins, make punch needle embroidered pins, make a bunch on theme and attach them to a temari or I might make a bunch on theme and using rubber bands turn them into a puzzle. 

Hmmm, I'm not sure but I've got ideas!!!
