Barb loves to have that personal unique touch on each item she has
If you buy just one little button from Theodora Cleave you know that the original designer has painted it...which is a very special unique experience in our busy world today
Barb begins her work with illustrations that are translated into
unique designed hand painted buttons, decorations, brooches, tags, thread winders & thread holders etc etc
At times the illustrations become stitching designs, and appliques
Many of the button designs are incorporated into small stitching patterns which are aptly names Button Stories or Button Samplers..these are left mostly for you to decided which project the story is worlked into.
There are times the Button stories are equiped with a simple template for you to sew onto...
