So Lynne contacted me a little while back for a buttonflower grab bag, but she was also interested in an obi belt like the one I made for Sheila. The one I made for Sheila wasn't on my list of regular items because obi belts are a bit of a challenge, they weren't something I was 100% sure of how to pull off.
Combining the ties means finding two ties that are almost identical in shape and fabric weight, and also complementary in color and print. These two purple based ties were absolutely fabulous together.
However I was quite excited to fulfill her request. I've been learning Lynne's colors since I started watching her blog, and she's one of those people who knows what looks good on her. She looks so fierce in her Fluevog shoes and MMD belt. I also love how she incorporated a third print by adding the buttonflower to decorate the knot of her obi.
I'm actually considering making one for myself, I love the look so much. I'm still a newbie at sewing, so most of my projects are also learning experiences. I love that I actually have pieces worn by people across the blogsphere, and the world! If you're interested in your own obi belt or buttonflowers, shoot me an email. I'll be happy to work with you and create your own custom accessory made from recycled materials.
