This heart-felt project represents the "souls" in my life. People I hold so dear. I collected mine into a "button" basket from Longaberget so they could be shared and adored. Charms and Buttons add a special touch. Each needs about a 6" square of linen, backing fabric and threads as you see fit.
I have suggested the linens and threads used in the pictured "birds," but you may choose to represent your "souls" using your favorite colors, fabrica and trims. Enjoy stitching each "soul" as you remember their special place in your heart.
Use the enclosed alphabet or choose your own favorites. The dark lines are a guide for letter placement.
