Buttons

20170616_132101[1]When I grew up I used to love my mom’s button-box. In it were all kinds of pretty buttons and you could rummage your fingers through them and feel their smoothness and hear the rattling sound they made.

Now I have my own and I still like it for the same reasons. However, it’s not of much use to me. When I buy buttons in thrift stores, I’ll go after the prettiest and most extravagant ones n’est-ce pas? Which is fine, I might find a use for them, but usually what I need is to replace one button that’s lost and then I’d need a reather plain one. And if I am to use the flashy ones,  there’s never enough of them, is there?

Right now I’m sitting on two UF’os that need 5 buttons each. Seems I’m gonna have to head for the fabric store anyways, despit me treasure chest at home

Buttons and needles and pins, oh my!

Buttons and stuff

I got the last parts for the waistcoat yesterday. The nice lady at Rydströms does the buttons covered in my fabric for o price at all, and the buckles for the back are true vintage from her stash.Image

I finished this shirt for my son’s birthday today. He liked it so  much he wore it all day. He especially pointed out how he liked the buttons and the pink seams on collar and shoulders. Apart from the elephants, of course.
