Buttons make or break a project. I need some sort of closure on the jacket. Previously I had big handcrafted wooden ones on it. I took those off some time ago and put them somewhere safe. Needless to say now that I need to see if I will use just one I can't find them. Plus I think it needs a bit more ornamentation. I am considering adding some crochet on a couple of edges, a few smaller bits of crochet and a crocheted button. So off to the net I went.
by Nancy Nehring and couldn't resist buying her book on my kindle
and these from Mademoiselle Chaos.
Then there are these really easy ones from Craft Stylish
Dorset buttons or some like these from Burda Style
and there is a brief history of them on P8 Buttons and Fabrics Craftstylish has a dorset button tutorial
For the crocheted ornamentation I thought of doing some crocheted ric-rac like this from Foxs Lane
I've just spent an hour shuffling round the net so I should go and do some of this. I'll show you tomorrow what I've done.
