Have you ever noticed that we really don’t have a distinct word for those laminated “buttons” with a pin on the back often used at political rallies?
We Need a New Word
Do you have any suggestions? I’d like to have a word to describe these little items that the entire English-speaking world should use that would distinguish them from these:
And here’s why…I have recently acquired a very nice set up for making very professional looking 3″ Button Pins.
Takes printed paper…
And makes very nice 3″ diameter pin-on buttons…
If anyone has a need for buttons to be made and it’s for good cause (especially if it’s for RESIST or MoveOn.org, etc.), and you’d be interested in designing a button…I’d be glad to help support that.
The finished button is 3″ in diameter, but it requires a design that is centered on a 3.5″ circle.
The Old Shale Wrap has grown to about 13″ across (with about 2″ more to go).
Working on these wraps during a time when it feels like it will never be cool again seems insane, but I love how beautifully they’re turning out.
I also decided I liked having an upstairs and a downstairs project, so I started a new Knitted Cross Stitch Scarf.
I’m using one of the yarns from The Perfect Blend Online web site…Dragonfly Pixie is a fantastic single-ply yarn (the darker of the two yarns if you can differentiated them in the scarf). They will be having a Labor Day sale starting Friday. If you use the coupon code LABORDAY, it will be 20% off everything on the site.
