Worktable Wednesday

I continue my fun with three-signature bindings.

Today I did Keith Smith’s 2-needle Isolated Diamonds binding. Once you get the pattern down, it’s a pretty easy. I got the crazy purple leather from ReSOURCE (formerly the ReStore) last week.

I can’t decide on what type of closure to make. On the one hand, I have a shiny metal washer that would look cool, playing its shape off the diamonds. On the other hand, I have some crazy rhinestone buttons that could be fun, going with the diamond theme.

I’m up for recommendations!

I like the button at the 9 o’clock position because it’s funky. But the 3 o’clock button probably goes better as it picks up the purple.

Mags –

Thanks for the feedback! Since you’re the only one expressing an opinion, I’ll go with your suggestion. Now I just need to find where I put that bag of buttons. Argh.

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
