Collage and vintage buttons make up an original pin from my "Button Dollz" collection for you to wear. Each of my Button Dollz is different so you can find one to express your personality. These are a real talking point whenever they are worn.
Cutie Pie is made from buttons, card collage with diamond glaze for durability, lucite leaves and art wire with a tiny sparkling sequin heart eye-brow piercing. There is a simple gunmetal brooch pin on the back.
Measures about 8cm/3.1" x 10cm/4" in the photo but you can gently bend it to a shape you like.
Each button doll is a handmade, unique artistic decoration for you to wear on your clothing, bag or hat - or they are great as a decoration on a lampshade, cushion or curtains. They come on a presentation card so they make a great gift.
Here's a picture of the apron.

A little about our sponsor:
Hi my name is Regina. I am a 50 year old who comes from Illinois. I live in Illinois with my daughter and 3 wonderful grandsons. I have been crafting since i was 18 years old. I got into craftig when I was in school and it has stuck with me ever since. Over the years I have tried many crafts from crochet,loom knitting,candlemaking to jewlery making. Finally after several years of tring different crafts I have settled on making bottlecap items. I just love how my creations come out after I finish making them. Bottlecaps are very neat cause there is so much you can make with them. Like Necklaces,earrings,rings,
Oh and If you have any questions feel free to send me a convo. I love to chat and answer questions.

QTpi - Cutie Pie Handstamped Brass and Copper Necklace
Thursday, January 27, 2011
I found this vintage print and new it was exactly what I needed! I also used a real vintage pattern my mother-in-law found in her mothers stash! I hope my partner loves the simpleness of the apron, I really just wanted to showcase the cute vintage valentines, and I think it turned out way better than I hoped! (Thanks Jannae for modeling.) By the way... anyone else have kids that love aprons? Jannae (she's 8) has been dying to do an apron swap with someone her age..ish. We've made lots together, but that doesn't get the excitement of getting a package in the mail. If there is anyone out there in the same boat, lets talk!

Thought I'd post a sneak peek of my apron for my valentine. I kinda went the girly way and added lace and flowers. I need to add more flowers yet and the apron strings then I'm done. Yay!
My Cutie Pie Apron is all done---I chose the yellow button--what do you think???
When I received my partner information she listed a few things that she loved. the 1st thing reminded me of somethings I bought many years ago but had not seen in forever---so after some searching and a trip to the attic Whala (another tuck-in) I went to my local antique shop in search of the 2nd item on her list and Lucky Me there it was all red and sparklie and 50% off (I am lovin' this swap). Finally the 3rd item was easy as pie--Hershey Kisses! I will be mailing your package soon--hope you love all your Cutie Pie Goodies!

I love this sweet beautiful "Cutie Pie" greeting card! Diana of Not Your Everyday Cards hand crafts every card in her shop, and she is crafting a sweet set just for us.
Here are some tuck-ins for my valentine. I need to make her a valentine yet and finish up the apron...I'm excited about the apron, I printed the valentine queen on a large sheet of fabric and that's going to be the focal point...more photos to come! xo
