We have some really cool pictures of the process to show you... but unfortunately... since their line is so comprehensive... we can't show you each button they make!
Refer to your patterns, and you'll most likely see JustAnother Button Company featured on them!
Below, you will find a place where you can write in any JABC buttons you need.
These gals bring our industry HUNDREDS of different hand-made button embellishments for our needlework! Found on patterns everywhere... Just Another Button Company buttons are made from polymer clay.
The artists create the 'picture' in a long 'cane' of clay... rolling and stretching the straw-like rope of material.
When it's just the right diameter or size... they slice the clay, bake it, and then drill teeny-weeny holes in every single piece.

Jack & Jinx from Val's Stuff and JABCO
This is a small ornament design that is only PARTIALLY stitched! Just Another Button Company is printing the design on 14ct white perforated paper. You leave most of it alone, but stitch the orange pumpkin and garnish with the yellow buttons on the corners, the Jack's eyes, and the bat. You supply the black, white and orange floss from your stash, buttona are included.
Finishing only 3 x 3-1/2 in size, this would make a really GOOD beginner design for someone to learn Cross Stitch. The paper is strong, the design in technically printed on, so really no counting... it's small and colorful and seasonally CUTE!
Holiday Square-ologys - Holiday Glow and Merry Go Round
A pair of cute 3-1/2 inch ornament designs, these are both stitched on the 32ct Natural Belfast linen featuring little white polka dots painted on the fabric. Each comes with its button embellishments -- isn't that round of red trucks CUTE?
Finish inside a 4-inch wooden hoop as shown, use Square-ology's white enameled candle pans, or simply make stuffed cushion ornaments or flats backed with felt! Lots of options... but get the polka dot linen for sure!
Introducing Chalk Squared!
from Just Another Button Company and Hands-On Design
JABCO and Hands On Design have announced their 2016 Chalk Series for Cross Stitch. Quite involved with different finishing choices this year, you can stitch JUST the central square -- *Each moment of the year has its own beauty.* or you can make it the central part of the larger piece.
There are 12 little parts coming monthly that you can finish in individual candle pans (make them magnets or whatever) OR you can stitch those right onto the larger piece. THEN, of course, there are button sets each month... so we have TONS of details for you!
***A Moment in Chalk -- OK... this is the central design of the series. You can stitch just IT (135 x 135 stitch count) on the 30 or 32ct Gunmetal Weeks Linen (8-1/2 or 9 inches square when finished) with hand-dyed Gentle Art Sampler Threads. OR, you can stitch it in the center of the larger piece -- 317 x 317 stitches, that will finish 20 to 21 inches in size -- depending on whether you use 30 or 32ct linen. That larger scrolling border is included in this first chart.
***Individual Calendar Florals -- These will release each month -- the smaller charts. Jan, Feb and March have now arrived. You'll need 9 x 9 cuts of linen for each and a little 4-inch white enameled candle pan -- if you stitch them individually. If you add them onto your main 317 x 317 piece, the first chart will tell you where they go (no candle pans needed then).
***Enameled Candle Pans ***Finishing Kits for the Candle Pans... keeps your needlework stretched and puffed perfectly to place in that little pan.
***Button Packs for each Calendar Floral -- we are offering these together with the charts, but prices will vary each month -- per JABCO.
***Linen is Week's 32ct Gunmetal. Last year's set used a 1/2 yd cut of 30ct. If you still have that left -- you can USE IT! It'll change your total design area by 1/15th of an inch every inch. Basically it won't matter much for the finished pieces -- not enough to buy new linen anyway! Regular Moment in Chalk will need a 15 x 15 cut. Huge conglomerate project will need a fat 1/3 yard -- 27 x 27 cut. Each month's design will need an 8 x 8-ish sized piece... that's a half yard. So, probably figure a yard... it's the most economical way to purchase this. (that's if you choose the candle pan option!) CONFUSED YET????
***Threads: Tropical Ocean, (3) Grasshopper, Rhubarb, Melon Patch, Huckleberry, Aged Pewter,Harvest Moon, Geranium, (6) Chalk, Buttercrunch, Sweet Petunia, Wood Smoke, Shutter Green, Green Apple ($52.50) and a bit of black DMC.
***BACK BOARD for Middle Design -- A gorgeous soft blue whitewashed and distressed finish, you can see the shaped edges peeking out from behind the main Moment In Chalk design -- if you stitch JUST it.
So Stitchers.... We suggest a phone call to consult about fabric sizes, which way you want to do this set... pans vs fabric, finishing kits vs not... whew! Dropdown options are for individual projects on 30ct.
Just Another Button Company has the most delightful set of alphabet letters and the ampersand to spell out words and names! These are perfect to use to teach a beginning stitcher!
They are actually white 5-1/2 inch squares of 14ct perforated paper that JABCO has printed with stripes, spots or hearts of beige, pinks and greens. Each letter, also printed in black on the paper, features its own background... meaning all the M's have the pink stripes, but other letters have different colored stripes! Stitch a little or a lot -- they have charted only a small floral design for each, and provided buttons for garnish. You supply the bits of floss from your stash.
SO cute, colorful, fresh, bright, clean and cheerful... you can stitch just one initial or spell out a huge long greeting! Just depends on your budget! Frame or finish on scrapbook papers -- you decide.
Val's Blooming Kitty
So cute, this is quite a unique presentation. The cat body and pink swirls are printed on 14ct perforated paper. You stitch the flowers and cat face from the chart, embellishing with the smattering of colorful JABCO buttons! Then, place the coordinating printed sheet of paper behind the perf paper -- all the holes will be filled in with color -- and frame in a 5 x 5!
This is REALLY cute! All you add are the flosses.
Kiss-A-Bit and Merry-Berry
The Square-ology gals have a pair of new designs to help with the Christmas mood! This set of designs is presented in card format with the clay button embellishment. You get 1/4 of the design, and then pivot it 90 degrees to repeat it over and over until you get it finsihed. EXCEPT the Bit -- which is just a stand-alone design.
Confused? Don't worry about it. 30ct Weeks Gunmetal Linen, bits of hand-dyed floss... the fob finishes 2 x 2, the Merry Berry wreath is only 4 x 4. Very pretty!
Bumble Bits -- Square*ology!
A pair of cute new Square-ology charts have arrived -- a small bee fob design and a Bumble Bouquet. Offered as the small charts with the button smattering, there is a darling new JABCO bee featured on these. Part of the Square-ology Series by Hands On Design and Just Another Button Company... you might not want all in the sets so far... but some of these are REALLY stunning little designs! They are all pin cushion or fob sized as well. Offered as the chart with 'Square Bits' -- the buttons!
Square-ology from JABCO and Hands On Design
You've probably seen lots of advertising for this new series of small patterns... Basically, they are 4-card sets of coordinating designs -- each offered with a small embellishment packet. What makes them a bit different is the chart presentation. Each design is presented as ONE-FOURTH of the total charted design. (except one! So try to keep that straight!!!) You stitch the design, and then rotate the chart to continue stitching the other 3 corners of the piece. Don't get lost in all those directions... you'll see when you get these that they are fun and very easy.
Each chart comes individually with a beautiful picture of the finished piece on the front, along with its cute embellishments. We are promised a new set of 4 designs every other month! Since there are 4 in here... and embellishments... we are not putting everything on auto-ship -- we are leaving chart choices up to you!!!!
Merry Cane, Peppermint Stripes and Ho Ho Ho Spoken Here
Art to Heart has a trio of small designs that would be pretty as pin cushions, ornaments or gift tags -- depending on your fabric choice. Presented as three separate small charts, each comes with a few Just Another Button Company clay buttons for garnish.
Finishing approx 2-1/2 x 4-ish inches each (they are all slightly different in size) they all use the same color assortment of Weeks and Gentle Art hand-dyeds so they definitely go together. Choose white perforated paper, 30ct Seafoam linen... or whatever floats YOUR boat!!! Very fresh, new colors!!!!
This is the first chart in the charming set of Art to Heart's Garden Song Designs! Originally in Quilt and Applique, we now get these happy designs in chart format!!! *Sprout*Grow*Bloom* features a leaping lady amidst her Springtime Garden of flowers. Stitched on Weeks 30ct Dove Linen it measures 7-1/2 x 8 and uses both Weeks and Gentle Art flosses. The button embellishments include a bumble bee, yellow flower and two DELIGHTFUL fat little polka-dot blue mushrooms!
That magnet I mentioned -- one of those soft, flexible ones with shiny front -- that is included as a bonus is a approx 2-1/2 x 3-1/2" and you can use it WHERE-EVER you want! I know there will be more designs to follow that coordinate with Sprout --I just don't know the release dates yet. We'll let you know!
*Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the apples in a seed.* Just a little motivational thing to foster hope! What will come of the seeds you plant? Offered as a chart, this is stitched on Weeks 30ct Grasshopper Linen in only 7 different shades of hand-dyeds.
The included buttons are big apples and tiny seeds... and the cute bonus magnet features a trio of stylized apples. Finished size is 8 x 8... I think this might be the quintessential teacher gift!!!!
Take time to have a little fun! *Dilly Dallying and Lollygagging Allowed!* What a fun piece that probably shouldn't hang someplace very serious!!! Worked on Weeks 30ct Charlotte's Pink with overdyed flosses, this finishes approx 5 x 15.
Garnish with the bumble bee button and a few other rounds... not much to this delightful piece... before you get to smile! Offered as the chart with buttons -- and that fun flexible magnet from JABCO as well.
Just Another Button Company has charted the 4th block of Art to Heart's Garden song quilt... this one says *Gardeners use flowers as paint, soil and sky as canvas.* Stitch it for the one with the green thurmbs in your family!
Stitched on the soft peachy Baby's Breath 30ct hand-dyed linen be Weeks Dye Works, it is charted for DMC or hand-dyed flosses, and is garnished with a small sampling of buttons and a pair of clay bees. It finishes aprox 7-1/2 inches square... and has three other companion designs for the gardening-lover in your life!
Laugh With Flowers
Just Another Button Company has taken another of Art To Heart's pretty applique patterns and converted it to Cross Stitch. Third in the Garden Song series of designs... Spout was the first, and Bees Hum is the second, this happy piece is stitched on Weeks 30ct Sea Foam Linen in 8 different hand-dyed flosses. It finishes approx 8 x 8, and is garnished with the included button set.
Just happy, rich colors of Lancaster Red and Copper, Grasshopper and Forest Glade, and Harvest Moon -- they aren't pale but strong and eyecatching. Offered as the chart with buttons, JABCO even adds a fun paper magnet in the package as a bonus!
Art to Heart has a plump FLORAL beehive that Just Another Button Company has charted into Cross Stitch. Can you see the flower design in the hive? Stitched on Week's Dye Works 30ct Honeysuckle hand-dyed linen with 11 different hand-dyed or DMC flosses, the chart comes with the collection of button embellishments -- three bees and a smattering of deep purple buttons for the flower stems.
Art to Heart has a Garden Song Quilt design... this is the second panel of it that JABCO has charted for us. Finishes approx 7-1/2 inches square... I just LOVE that floral pattern in the hive, and the pretty collection of warm buttermilk and butterscotch colors against the Forest Glade and Tomato greens and reds!
Meet Me Under The Mistletoe
Art To Heart has a new cross stitch design -- Just Another Button Company has adapted it for them from one of their quilt/applique patterns!!! A pretty holiday piece -- you probably won't be displaying the finished piece this year... but next year's Christmas is already scheduled on the calendar -- so you have lots of notice!
Stitched on Week's 30ct Parchment with overdyed or DMC flosses of reds, greens and caramel taupes, the chart includes a trio of clay buttons to embellish. Just a pretty, contemporary design, they suggest that you frame this right up to the edge of your stitching -- to make it look kind of like a quilt block. Very pretty, eyecatching, fresh and clean! Offered as the chart with buttons.
Just Another Button Company and Art to Heart have teamed up again to bring us 4 MORE cute quilt designs in Cross Stitch! Bittersweet Pumpkins features a pair of pretty spectacular pumpkins stitched in lots of gorgeous Autumnal shades of DMC, Weeks and Gentle Arts or Anchor flosses.
They've garnished with a small smattering of buttons -- but if your stash has some cute ones that are 'homeless' -- add them! Stitched on Week's 30ct Parchment and finishing approx 8 x 9 ... you might want to look at Week's Straw or even Zweigart's Dirty Linen ... just a color that is a shade darker than that Parchment -- so the right pumpkin (which is stitched in GAST Peach Ice Cream) shows up better. It is WAY TOO CUTE to be lost against the background fabric, and I think it is now. Anyway, adapted from Art to Heart's quilt designs, this is a beautiful piece of needleart! Offered as the chart with button set.
This is a cute play of threads within the various letters. FULL of color, it's kind of fun to have the words in only two different colorways... but with tons of different shades in each. Some of the letters have patterns on them -- worked in a complimentary over-dyed shade -- look at the M. Some are stitched vertically -- can you see that in the E, S and A? And of course, the little white dots are cute as can be in the R, H and T.
This is worked with 13 different thread colors (Weeks, DMC or Anchor) on Week's 30ct Grasshopper Linen, and it finishes approx 6 x 6. It is garnished with a simple red button and a pretty little cardinal.
Oh this is CUTE! Look at how they've 'textured' Rudolph to make him look more like quilt fabric! Stitched with 14 different shades of hand-dyeds, DMC or Anchor (You'll need 2 Pomegranate) this little guy finishes approx 5 x 6 on Week's 30ct Seafoam Linen.
His buttons are simple -- just that red nose and a sprig of holly for his antlers. Very cute! Offered as the chart with buttons.
Ho Ho Ho
At first I didn't figure out that the snowman and ornament were letters! Very pretty color detail in the H letters, I don't know how good my picture is... but they are filled with complimenting snowflakes. Then, the snowman is stitched with alternating rings of Picket Fence and Bluebell! I know that doesn't show up well -- but he looks great.
13 Different shades of hand-dyeds or solids, the button garnishes on this include a peppermint and berry on the wreath, black snowman eyes and that cute carrot nose, and the flake on the ornament. Offered as the chart with button set.
By Art to Heart, Just Another Button Company's adaptation from their quilt and fabric applique collection, Noah's ark is brimming with a family of animals amidst the rolling waves! *Love is Keeping Promises* is the verse on this colorful 6-1/2 x 7-1/2 inch piece. Stitched on Week's 30ct Seafoam Linen with 18 different Weeks and Gentle Art hand-dyed threads, the buttons that embellish include a pair of doves and gold fish, along with an owl, turtle and giraffe.
There are a ton of animal buttons on the market... so if you have some others you want to include, there is plenty of room on Noah's Ark to add them! This would make a really cute nursery piece, or birth announcement! Offered as the chart with button embellishments.
Another Art to Heart design -- originally published in applique -- Buzzing By is from the same book as our Curious Owl and Mischieveous Monster!!! A fat little bee is buzzing by the most glorious flower ever!
Stitched on Weeks 30ct Seafoam Linen in 16 shades of Weeks hand-dyeds (or DMC or Anchor), every petal and leaf is stitched in a fabric design!!! Just SO cheerful and colorful, it's truly a piece of stitched art! Finishing approx 7 x 7, the buttons are included with the chart. Very festive!
Mischievous Monster & Curious Owl
Just Another Button Company brings the quilted applique artwork of Art to Heart to the world of Cross Stitch with their design adaptations! Originally applique designs from the book 'Curiosities and Mischief' the JABCO ladies have charted the fabric designs adding color and pattern where-ever necessary to simulate the bright and fun fabrics used in the original quilted pieces. We LOVE them... the little owl sold out at our recent show booth at the St Charles Celebrations Show!
Another pretty adaptation from the Art to Heart artwork by the JABCO gals... this is stitched on Week's 30ct Dove linen... but we think it'd be STUNNING on a cream. 14 Different colors of Week's hand-dyeds or DMC flosses, Christmas is spelled down the left edge providing the first letters of short thoughts of The Christmas Story. Christ is born, honor Him. Inn... no room, Star shone. Three Wisemen, Manger bed, Angels sing, Shepherds watched.
Everything is garnished with charming JABCO buttons -- the whole nativity, angels, the inn and star, three Wisemen, baby in the manger, and shepherd and sheep. There is a lot going on in this... and all of it is in a 4 x 13-1/2 inch piece!!! Very colorful and eye-catching! Offered as the chart with button set.
Sit a Spell
From Art to Heart's Acorn Hollow quilt design book... this very sociable witch might be inviting you to meal that you don't want to be a part of -- LITERALLY! Very cute... she is stitched on Week's 30ct Kudzu linen in 12 different shades of Week's flosses. She is garnished with a frog, spider (I love how he's dangling from the word 'spell'), and calico pumpkin button.
Lots of cute color, the lines in the black dress make it look like Art to Heart's original fabric colors in the original fabric design!!! Finishing approx 6 x 7, this is offered as the chart with button pack.
A charming bell pull by Art to Heart for JABCO, this is a quick stitch! Worked on Week's 30ct Grape Ice Linen in only 6 hand-dyeds or DMC, the BOO is actually two buttons, and I think the bat fangs are really the candy corn buttons!
We carry that cool pewter hardware featured at the top of the hanger... from Charland Designs... and ours is still at a lower price than the new shipments!!! How can you be scared of that swirly ghost???! Offered as a chart with buttons.
This companions BLOOM! A total overload of gorgeous colors and motifs, I love both of these designs!!! Color, randomness, larger-than-life motifs , and patterns in the floss colors to simulate fabric designs... this finishes approx 7 x 7 on Week's 30ct Periwinkle Linen. It features a button package of plain little circles and stars and that big 'ol butterfly.
Offered as the chart with buttons -- SO UPLIFTING!
Art to Heart has a new appliqued piece that Just Another Button Company has converted into Cross Stitch! LOADED with bright, cheerful color, the bellpull (you could frame this if you wanted, too) is stitched on Week's Dye Works 30ct Guacamole Linen in either Weeks, DMC or Anchor flosses. Each of the words features an enlarged letter -- see? -- they spell Santa's Coming! See the little dots and dingbats scattered all around? Touches of Whimsey...
The entire 3-1/2 x 14 inch piece is adorned with a delightful set of Just Another Button Company buttons... including one of their new Stacked Buttons. The reindeer is actually layered with a belt and separate head piece! REALLY, really cute, this is offered as the chart with button pack. Fabric and threads are offered separately.
Notice the Pewter Santa hardware across the pull's top? We have those!!!! Designed by Art to Heart and produced in pewter by Charland Designs -- he is just precious!!!
A trio of tone-on-tone snowmen look like they're beating the chill by hanging out with each other! Stitched on Week's Dye Work's 30ct Sea Foam Linen in luscious overdyeds, DMC or Anchor flosses, add a clay nose here, a bird there, and a pair of errant mittens, and your 8 x 3-1/2 inch piece will be finished!!!

Mumford Mummy This guy is the cutest!!!! He's another felt ball covered with cheesecloth bandages... and he has bloodshot eyes!
(This is a big thing for JABCO. For YEARS, they have had a rule that they would do no body parts in clay.

You make this little guy and display him among your Halloween pumpkins... and your family will *immediately notice.* (might think something has happened to you... but will instantly understand!)

Each comes as its own complete kit of spool, wool ball, ribbons, pipe cleaner legs, wools and buttons for the outfits, that cute little face button, it's own set of stick-pins, and of course the instruction sheet. They finish in a snap... and will be endearing where-ever they end up! Think about positioning some Christmas Tree branches -- these little guys would be enchanting hiding in your Christmas Tree!!!!! (The $100 special will run till 2012 Christmas Eve!)
Itsy Bitsy Spider
These are the cutest things... and they take no time at all to make. Fold Itsy Bitsy's pipe cleaner legs and tuck into his spool hole. Glue on his ball, add the bow, glue or sew on his eyeballs and garnish -- and he's finished! A super fun Halloween decoration... if you're a scout leader, get one of these and see if you can turn it into a meeting project.

Offered as a complete kit of all the yummy olive greens, gold, teal blue and chocolate brown wools, you get all his buttons and pins... and complete finishing instructions. He is OVER-THE-TOP-CUTE!!!!!
An Acorn Medley
What a delightful little dish of acorns!!! This kit makes a collection of 5 wool-capped acorns -- each beginning with a 1-1/4 inch wool ball. Soft rose, butterscotch, olive green, teal blue and a soft cocoa brown, each acorn is topped with a brown cap.. The leaves are teal and green -- they coordinate with the acorns!
So... you make your caps out of circles... sew them onto the balls, adorn with leaf and doodle buttons... make the leaves... and then arrange everything (adding the pins that spell PINS!) in a favorite little bowl you have laying around somewhere! (I've seen little stick birds nests... but a tiny basket would be cute too) Offered as the complete kit of everything you need -- balls, wools, buttons, perle cottons, and pins -- everything except the bowl -- the colors in this are just stunning! (price might shock you... think of this as handmade ART!)
Another one of these cute Button Buddies -- HOW can they keep turning a plain and simple wool ball into the most delightful little creatures??? Bobbi Blackbird is perched atop a big clay button base (so he doesn't fly away.) Garnished with clay wings, eyes and beak... he even comes with pretty dressing pins. He stands about 1-1/4 inches high -- without his pins.
Offered as the complete kit , definitely another real quick, fun project!
The Christmas Spoolkeeps
Santa's Helper Wow... we don't get too many cute elf things around here... so this little guy is definitely unique, and super cute!
Spool, wools, pins, beads and pins, I think his ears are heart buttons!
Lazy Turtle Pincushion
What a cute little guy! Just Another Button Company has another darling, EASY TO ASSEMBLE pin cushion design, that comes as a complete ready-to-go kit. Mr Lazy Turtle is actually a wad of wool roving covered with pastel green fabric. Glue his tummy button on -- don't forget the Crescent Colour's rik-rak on there -- and dress him with pink lily pad leaves!
His little head and feet are all pre-made balls of wool, you cut out the pink wool lily petals, sew on his smile, and poke the flower blossom pins into your pink and green creation -- and you're finished! Lazy Turtle measures a mere 3 x 3 x 3-ish... the complete kit contains all the pattern templates for cutting all, the wool roving, balls, felt, pins, pins, rik-rak, buttons... everything!
Little Birdie Pincushion
We have 6 new wool and felt pin cushion kits this week... and each one is cuter than the one before it! I've chosen three different kits for my pic here... three different sizes and price-points... just to show that you have quite a choice with these. We like JABCO's complete kits for their cushions -- as everything you need is in the package, so when you're ready to *cushion* -- your stuff is READY TO GO!
You'll notice all the clay buttons and pins on them -- all those embellishments are in the kits as well. Make sure to click the pic to see the puppy, rabbit and cat cushions that are also new!
Over The Moon for Ewe
Here's another sheep to add to your growing flock of Ewe Look Fabulous cushions -- especially if you have them dressed in their Spring, Patriotic, Halloween and Christmas Blanket outfits! Mr Ewe is constructed from a wad of wool stuffing, surrounded with a layer of black and gray herringbone Week's wool. What makes this little guy special (and very pricey) is his coat of R & R's hand-dyed gray cotton chenille. It is actually trim that you are couching on all over his rotund roly-poly belly. Then, you can poke in the stars and moon pin set!
Quite a bit larger, and more expensive, than the rest of his flock... he might be the favorite! (I remember one of Natalie's children's story books about a sheep named Argyle. He wandered off to eat the pretty flowers and it turned his wool rainbow colors! He hated the attention and was happy when the farmer fenced off the fancy flowers and he went back to eating grass and his coat faded back to plain old gray!) Over the Moon for Ewe contains everything you need -- wools, stuffing, ball feet, chenille, and pins. You add a needle and some thread.
Wool Pin Cushions!
Just Another Button Company has been creating the most enchanting pin cushions out of Week's Dye Work's Wools, and garnishing them with their very own Just Pins! Each cushion design comes FULLY kitted with its pattern, wool pieces, some threads (some still need a bit of your sewing thread), wool roving for cushion stuffing, and its very own set of 5 clay-topped pins that stick right into your lovely creation!
Check out the acorn, strawberry, snowman, blackbird and DARLING little heart box of stuffed chocolates! Way cute... nothing to do with Cross Stitch... except that every stitcher LOVES fun threats like these! To celebrate Just Another Button Company's 15 years in business... they are creating a set of 15 cushions that are releasing for 15 months in a row! JABCO the Snowman is #1, Stuck on You is #2, and Pin Feathers is #3. We're doing an auto-ship on these... they're just too cute to miss!
Just Another Button Company's last little wool pin cushion has arrived! (I hope they don't stop designing these... they are so cute!) A rich red herringbone wool cardinal, she sports black lining under her wings and a festive set of NOEL pins decorating her back.
Offered as a complete kit of all the wools, threads, pins and awesome real wool roving stuffing... this has been a lovely set of 'upper end!' handmade cushions. Little works of art!
The latest and greatest Just Another Button Company felted wool pin cushion is here! We have only two more to go in this fun set of cushions... I'm going to miss the monthly surprises when they're finished! This month, we have a 2-1/2 x 4 pumpkin constructed of 5 sides. (If you have any leftover cuts of pumpkin-colored wools in your stash -- they might make neat sections.) Stitch the green leaf, and embellish with a few acorns and sunflowers... twist and bend the stem... poke into that center... and you're finished!
Each complete kit comes with all your necessary wool pieces -- even the intoxicating wool roving used as stuffing -- ribbons, templates and patterns, all the button embellishments and set of 5 pins you see poking out from the top! Lovely works of hand-made fabric ART!
A Celebration Cupcake!
Just Another Button Company's 11th in their set of 15 wool pin cushions has arrived... but we ate it! A chocolate cupcake decorated with strawberry icing and lots of whip cream... your pin cushion fits into a paper scallop-edged round and is topped with a wool ruffle of strawberry ice cream... even a fresh berry on top! The cushion is garnished with desert pins.
See the berry blossom? Next, two chocolate kisses and two more teeny strawberry pins. The cupcake is scattered with little round sprinkle buttons, as well. Just the cutest thing... I'm picturing this on the sales counter of any bakery or cute cupcake shop!!! And... it better be the Daily Treat Reminder for any family member's birthday!!!
Complete kit includes all the wools, darling desert pins, all the cushion embellishments, roving stuffing, even the paper form to make the cupcake!
Shelby the Crab!
OK, all you *crabby* stitchers -- OR you Alaskans and East Coasters -- this little delight is for YOU! (I'm land-locked in Oklahoma... so I don't know... do you guys have the same kind of crabs???) Just Another Button Company presented an exclusive, limited crab pin cushion design in the class they taught at Market last week. Shelby is darling!!! She 'goes with' their set of 15 wool cushions -- but since she is a special edition -- I DID NOT ship these to those of you on that Monthly Cushion Auto-Ship.
She finishes a generous 7-ish inches long and is very plump and decorated! Garnished with a beach ball and stars, her pin set features sunglasses, flip-flops, another beach ball and little fish. She needs to be displayed at your lake cottage along side your Shell Seekers Pail from last month!!! Our complete kit contains the coral-colored crab wool, wool roving for her stuffing, floss for the Lazy-Daisy stitches on her shell, and all her embellishments and pins. SO CUTE!!! Do NOT make her into a crab cake!

Just Another Button Company has another cute wool pin cushion that needs to be used at your lake house or some place totally wet and wonderful! This month's edition doesn't look like there is any stitching (AT ALL!) to me... roll that wool into the 2 x 2-1/2 mini aluminum pail tack a few sand dollars on top of the 'water' and poke in the seashore pins -- and you're all set!
Smooth Sailing! Our complete kits come with the pail, wool, buttons and pins... you do the rolling and the poking!
Our 8th buttoned wool pin cushion by Just Another Button Company has arrived! PERFECT for a *chicken kitchen*, or perched on a small shelf, this is 'The Perfect Poultry!' Perched atop a wooden spool, the fabric body is topped with a wool head and tail feathers... and poked with a matching set of flower-topped pins.

Ewe Look Fabulous!
My gosh, this is the cutest little sheep! She really DOES look fabulous dressed in her Easter finery! Those little pink ears are detachable because they are on a pin -- so if she needs to straighten her blanket or fluff her ears, she can remove her Bunny Ears on a jiff! Her little feet are felted wool balls -- they come perfectly round in your kit.
Offered as the complete kit of pattern and ALL the wools, threads, pins and cute button embellishments, Ms Ewe is the size of a tennis ball -- but she's a whole lot cuter!
#4 Carrot Patch
Just Another Button Company's 4th in a set of 15th Birthday Pin Cushions...

Little Sheepy Just Pins
By Just Another Button Company, this set of 5 sheep pins caught my eye... so I just had to have them!! 5 Small white sheep, each is decorated with a quilt block or little what-not.
I think they are cute just by themselves, and would go in SO MANY different pin cushions -- they don't need a specific design to stand alone! Just Cute...
