Cute as a...

There's been a few "buttons" challenges around the interwebs lately, but I've either missed the deadline or wasn't quite moved. I was, however, moved by the potential of this week's Critter Sketch challenge, because it also included the challenge of using at least three buttons. Plus, I got to use one of the button brads I just had to have months ago and have never used!
For the background fabric I used an old sock of mine that is beyond darning hope. It must be 10 years old by now... I hand-stitched the border and the three buttons. It was so much fun!
