TAST 2012 Week 18 Crossed Buttonhole



This was also a fun stitch to do.  It is really great to try and use these stitches in a more nontraditional way.  I used flat cotton thread in the middle and then some silk perle and a couple of different sizes of cotton perle.  The outside circle is rayon ribbon floss.
