Lets do some stitching on the front like this, those variety vertical pattens together make one big patten. I also stitched some horizontal patterns on the cover of the button packets to balance the top vertical patten.

I am very impressed, seriously! I can't imagine having the patience for this. Having said that, I'm actually considering it because of your inspiration. :)

@Repurposeful: I know, right? I don't have the slightest patience to hand stitch anything, but Super Leaf makes it look so easy! Argh! I want to try but I know I'll quit 30 seconds in. :)
