Billy Buttons

Here’s a peek at something I’ve been working on for the nursery:

Craspedia (better known as “Billy Buttons”) have been a favorite of mine for a long time.

Unfortunately, they are super expensive to buy online and the real ones don’t dry very well.   Here’s a bettter option…felted balls!  I copied this tutorial and they were surprisingly easy!

Due to our current living situation (or I should say, my brother-in-law’s living situation, yes….he’s still here) Tate and Baby Girl will be sharing a room. I’ve been loving gray and yellow rooms and I thought that would be a perfect color combination for a boy/girl room.  I’m SOOOO excited for my next nursery project…….poetry hand-painted on canvas!!

Pictures to come soon!
