This new clergy stole features 433 vintage buttons sewn in a wavy organic river pattern. It's the newest stole in my Etsy shop: Shadrach's. It weighs 10.7 oz. I made it while visiting with family over the Thanksgiving holiday. I loved making the flowing design.
If you have a minute to "Pin" or "Favorite" it on Etsy, that would be great. Thanks!
The buttons are from the 1800's and 1900's. Old saved buttons eventually end up in rummage sales, where I find them. Some are ordinary, others are interesting, like the bovine bone buttons with 2 large holes. Some of the buttons are square. They are mostly white and off-white, with some brown and a few other colors.
These buttons represent the history of the people who wore them to school and work, to worship, to weddings and births, in illness, at sea, and possibly in the Civil War. Interesting to think about.

"My Mummy Made Me Do It!" by Tommy Simpson, exhibited at the Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, Massachusetts in 2013. This is one of several items featured on Quilter Beth's Blog.
It looks like it's wrapped with a variety of fabrics and ribbons. See the random knob that would be behind your right calf if you were sitting in the chair? Interesting.
Want to see more awesome chairs?

See my block: Beach Umbrellas? Like all my favorites, it looks a little tricky, but it's easier than pie.
I love being called one of "today's top designers." Haha. Right next to Bonnie Hunter too! Cool.
