The Makings of a Necklace

Several weeks ago I was about to lose my mind. Vivi was teething and decided to stop napping for about two weeks. I knew I needed some kind of outlet. I saw a necklace online made of buttons and thought it would be perfect for my zoning out needs.

I picked a few buttons.

Cut some felt. I sewed and hot glued them on the felt and cut the excess off.

Ta da necklace finished and a piece of sanity regained.
