Button It Up

These are some covered buttons I made for the Kasia skirt pattern that I started sewing up this weekend. They are much larger than the pattern calls for, about one and one-eighth inch wide. I think they'll look nice against the grey fabric of the skirt, providing little pops of color. Speaking of buttons, don't forget to head to Bolt on Saturday, March 28 at 4 p.m. where Susan Beal, author of Button It Up, will be on hand to do a couple of crafty projects: button magnets and pushpins. There will also be other crafty surprises.
