I happened upon MJ Trimming by accident, but I found this tutorial for a button bouquet. You can find the how to’s here. According to their website, MJ Trimming, based in New York, has over one million products, including rhinestone crystals from Austria, silk Jacquards from France, hand-cast metal buttons from Italy, and handmade wood-beaded fringes from India. They say that visiting the store is like a trip to a candy store for creative people. For those of us who cannot make it to any of the M&J retail stores in New York as often as we would like, well, we can shop around the clock at www.mjtrim.com.
The blog, Bloom, has this tutorial for her blossie bag. Her original bag was made for her 12-year old daughter to take as a gift to a friend’s birthday party. Well, I really like this bag, but I’m not telling you how old I am! Check this link to see other fabric combinations for making this bag. Be sure and check out her tutorialfor ‘easy peasy bag pockets’ and her tutorial for ‘faux piped bag handles’.
