I had some scrap pieces of dark blue velvet so I embroidered a small design. My thought was to create a cute little ball stuffed with quilt batting but it ended up looking like a dark blue marshmallow. On to plan B.
I had some large button making supplies, you know the ones you can pick up at JoAnn Fabrics and cover with your own fabric. I used the embroidered fabric, covered the button and used some of my metal charms and jewelry findings and a little E6000 glue.
