The button tree.
Please, oh please- don't tell me that you are tired of the button tree.
Such therapy to make- such pleasure in seeing those limbs take shape.
All cozied up with some retro pile fabric. (about as fun to sew as a tree trunk.... but manageable
with roughly fifty thousand head pins holding everything in place)
Then there was the "giddy" element of imposing the whole treedom on a vintage hanky depicting a sweet wee bird. With that in place, it was easy to throw caution (and greed) to the wind and spare nothing in my button box. (jar, dish, bottle, pan.....)
I don't know if I"ll ever tire of that floral sheet set from the '70s. It kind of makes all the fabrics around it bloom as well.
And that's not all. Not just another pretty face- form AND function with these convenient under flap pockets to strip you of all excuses when that pesky cell phone rings. (quick! If you're driving; answer it now before the up and coming law that will ban you from chatting while you make that left hand turn.)
Treedom is a medium sized messenger bag- about 10 x 11 ". Two under flap pockets, two interior pockets, and lotsa wow.
If I could grow me about seven extra arms, I'd tote this one around myself.
Starting bid is $30- Cdn and the auction will conclude on Friday, September 18, at 9:30 pm cst.
