Vilene emery board holder




For a swap that had to have buttons on, I made this emery board holder with pelmet vilene.
I put some texture paste at the bottom, made it textured, and when dry painted the whole thing with Viva metallic paints. I then did some machine stitching, added some buttons, then machined around the edge.
It's a lot brighter in real life, the scanner has dulled the colours.

It's beautiful Wendy! I love how you 'paint' with the stitches.

(I've been making some emery board holders too - so far only in paper and card - I've been thinking about fabric ones too so it's interesting to see your one made with pelmet vilene)
