Ocean Babies

Felt in the mood to create a few more button art projects. First step, start with a blank canvas. In this case it is a fabric circle approximately 6.5 inches in diameter and serged.

The next step to to draw an outline of the desired animal baby. The choice for this one is a whale. I wanted it to be whimsical. To enhance the outline, I selected purple embroidery floss and the outline stitch.


Using the purple color family, I selected an assortment of sizes and hues. Using a hot glue gun, the task of affixing the buttons began.


After letting the glue set, which only takes a couple of moments, the assembly of the fabric to the embroidery hoop occurred. Voila, the baby whale is done.
