I've been meaning to make something with covered buttons, and Hip to Stitch reminded me to actually do it - I liked her idea to make hair ties. So I messed with french knots and satin stitch and made a few for myself.
And I picked up some wool roving at the knitting store the other day, so I had to try my hand at felting. The orange hair tie looks a little flat in the photograph (I had to use flash, sorry), but it's really a big round orange felt bead. Felting is the perfect movie-watching activity! I'm looking forward to making more felt beads: necklaces, bracelets, etc.
