Remember to enter my giveaway this week!
A while ago, I was in need of some buttons. I mentioned it to my mom, and she promptly gave me an assortment of buttons that had been my grandma's or hers for years (only part of the collection, I'm sure).
Since I've been on this kick with headbands and neckwarmers, buttons have given me a lot of fun inspiration. The first project I worked on, I decided to look through one of the jars my mom gave me. This is what the dining room looked like after that:
Here is one project they inspired:
This one is done with a "curly" yarn with a silvery strand through it. The buttons are slightly purple and SO much prettier in person! You can see a more accurate color representation in the above picture just a little left of the maroon buttons in the middle.
I have ideas for more neckwarmer patterns--stay tuned! With so many buttons and stitch pattern ideas, I really need to get moving!
