Ring around the pink dots


This was a tester for a button cuff. The rings that I had previously used for my bracelets were difficult to maneuver under the foot of the sewing machine, the rings would have to be far enough away to not get under the foot, but close enough so that the fabric was nice and tight around it, other wise the rings would flop around loosely. I thought a button closure would not only look nice but also resolve some of these problems. I used polka felt (the same as I used on the robot coat), stitched on a 3 dimensional black gingham heart, a pink strawberry patch and a dotted love button. I used pink embroidery for the button and black thread for the button hole to bring the colors together.
