Polymer Buttons and Beads at Threadbear

Wednesday, November 24th, 2004

I taught polymer clay buttons and beads at Threadbear this last Sunday. We had a fabulous time. I had seven participants, and we all did things just enough differently to make things very interesting.

Here are two of the three trays we baked during class. They also took a bunch of work home to bake as well. Didn’t they do a nice job? I sure had a great time.

Oh, and also take a good look at Bev’s sweater. She made it up, bless her heart. Looks like a Nikki Epstein book come to life, in technicolor. It would even stand out in my very colorful closet!

The closures in front are buttons, which are covered up by leaves that have slits in the underside as buttonholes. Very clever indeed. The truth is, she wouldn’t need the buttons and beads class if she did all her sweaters this way! I’m glad she makes all sorts of sweaters, so I could have her attend my class.

Bev likes the back of the sweater a lot, so I made her turn around and let me get a photo of that. I told her to flirt with the camera. I think she followed instructions well!!!
