I was so excited to come home to the beautiful glass buttons. I managed to get 17 of the lip balm cozies completed, 3 more to go. I am participating in the 60km Weekend To End Breast Cancer in June 2009 and made this to help with my fundraising. These cozies are $12 each with the proceeds going to the walk. They are crocheted with 100% mercerized cotton and come complete with a handmade, lampwork glass button.
The buttons were made specifically for the cozies by the most incredible glass artist Gillian Soskin. They totally make the cozy! Thank you Gillian for helping me with my vision of these little guys!
If you know me you can purchase one of these cuties directly from me. Just call or email me. Or if you'd like to support such a wonderful cause please visit my Etsy site to make a purchase online. You do have to register on the Etsy site in order to complete the transaction. You can do so here.
I also encourage you to check out Gillian's Etsy Site too. Gorgeous handmade lampwork beads and buttons (if you can beat me to them!)
