Besides blocking, I still need to decide on some buttons. So, I hit the ever-intimidating button jars:
I was thinking I could go with my old classic: vintage brown leather buttons:
But then I found enough of these pretty brown buttons. I was having a hard time getting a good picture, but they remind of an old clay pot- pottery class style:
Here's a closer look, the reflection was giving me issues in every shot:
I could go matchy-matchy:
Add a little contrast:
Or a lot of contrast:
So before I took on the task of sewing on buttons, I decided I would come here to seek opinions- I know my readers never steer me wrong!
I'm also thinking of doing a hat and somehow incorperating the same leaf pattern- any suggestions there?
And for those of you wondering about the yarn- nope, it's not Madelinetosh, its Kona Superwash DK from Woven Art in East Lansing. This yarn shop is one of my favorite places to buy hand dyed yarn. The colorways and selection are impressive, the prices can't be beat. I love that it is (kind of) local to me, but for those of you who live far away, you can still request colorways and order online, just follow the link above!
