My husband's birthday was coming up and I found out that Jo-Ann Fabrics has Dr. Who themed fabric. In particular they have a cotton print of the 'Blue Box Exploding' painting that in the show was painted by Vincent van Gogh. My husband loves Dr. Who, so I decided a Victorian style vest made of the this fabric would be a great gift.
First, I wanted some unique buttons to go with the vest that fit the theme. I could not find any buttons I liked, so I decided to resin cast buttons. I copied images from the web of the Tardis, Weeping Angels, Cybermen and Daleks. I then shrunk these down to a size that would fit in my resin molds. After printing, I cut out my images and sealed them with 3 coats (front and back) with Modge Podge to prevent the resin from staining the paper.
Actually the pockets sort of disappear on this fabric, as you can see to the left, the upper pocket is almost invisible.
