E-Z Self-Fabric Buttons

 In progress: McCall 6256
The kit for the self-fabric buttons is so cute. On the front it makes the claim - make them round or flat. When you turn the card over to get the instructions the flat version is made by smashing them flat. copyright 1957 by E-Z Buckle, Inc. 

Finished: Covered lampshade with granny chic crochet edging.
the instructions for crochet edgings can be found here

More Linda Permann

I am making trim from the Crochet Adorned book. The is about the fifth or sixth time I've used instruction from this book. If you don't own it already -  I recommend it highly. This trim is going on the bottom of a lampshade that I covered using instruction found on pinterest.
