"Buttons" is a counted cross-stitch chart with instructions translated in English. It is part of a series called "la Boîte à Couture" (the Sewing box).

What we like about this series: 

  • the vintage look of these sewing accessories;
  • the way the colours are worked like a patchwork;
  • all the designs use the same DMC colours so you can match them as you please;
  • you can stitch them with or without the text.
