As promised, a piccie of the finished, button clad Willow…
I wish I’d made a size larger – it’s OK but a little snug – I imagined it being huge and snuggley and loose.
Here’s the buttons….
It was amazingly hard to find a button that matched. I went to John Lewis (where it was desserted because of the snow) and tried just about every button against willow – Metal was too bright or faded in too much, white was too stark, cream buttons were all too small….You get my drift? It boiled down to these or wooden duffel coat buttons…
And here’s something I haven’t shown you before – one of my little labels I’ve started putting in my creations!
