Buttons, Pom Poms, Felt Flowers?


I am trying to finish up some projects around my house before I start new ones. This is unusual for me. Wish me luck. Next up are the fabric covered panels for Cricket's built-in bed. I ordered the fabric 6 months ago, so it's about time to get going. I just need a little help.


I got a solid fabric, so I want to add a little interest. Maybe tufting.

But would you go with buttons in the same solid fabric or a contrasting button in white?

Then I thought it would be fun to add a felt pom pom.



Or maybe a flower...there are several styles to choose from.

Of course in the white only.

Or just a basic pom pom. Thoughts?

  1. The subtle contrast is quite nice or tone on tone is my vote! Can't wait to see your finished project. BTW, are you still doing your triathlon training? I'm hoping to squeeze at least on in this summer.

  3. I like the idea of felt or pom poms but I feel like as Cricket gets older she may outgrow it. Button tufting will always be a classic. But I think the idea will look cute either way!

  6. Those are some darling ideas! The pom poms are adorable, as are the flowers.. you have a tough choice :) I might choose the button tufting just for longevity! xoxo

  7. I might opt for the button tufting as well. Maybe you could use the pom poms or felt flowers somewhere less permanent like a pillow? Just a thought. I'm sure it will look great regardless! Can't wait to see . . .

  11. I'd go for button tufting. Tamara from nestprettythings did a cool headboard tufted with different colored buttons, maybe you'd want to check it out.
