This beaded mandala I stitched a while ago. All that was left to finish it was the outer edge. I struggle with that area. I can't do straight for the life of me! So, I experiment with different ways of finishing. I am quite happy with the way I framed this one with buttons. I have a good stash of buttons which is a really good thing when you need this many black buttons. I will definitely do this again! I need to go digging for dark blue buttons for another a piece. I may need to hit some thrift stores!
