It’s harder than one might think to take pretty pictures of buttons.
I love beautiful buttons. The right button makes all the difference in finishing a garment. This is why, under normal circumstances, I don’t buy buttons unless I have finished the project for which I need them. But, while at Stitches South, I went a little button crazy. Justifiably so, of course, because one of the vendors had nifty contemporary buttons for a reasonable price, and another vendor sold vintage buttons. For unreasonable prices. But I had prize money, and I didn’t care.
We’ll start with the contemporary buttons. They’re all made from resin, with a little sparkledust for good measure. Except for these, which remind me of jujubes:
I’m not exactly sure which yarn or pattern these will suit best. Yet.
Now for the old fashioned stuff!
