Now I need to get these buttons on, somehow! I’m thinking a crocheted edge, and building the button loops into that.
Aren’t they great? From Obie at the fair. He mostly had stone stuff, including granite and labradorite buttons, but these glass ones looked best.
I’m thinking my options are
- tie knots tight up against the fabric and trim the fringe to an even 2 inches or so
- braid the ends
- sew in all those ends
I don’t see #3 there as very realistic…
I think this is still a secret project… the recipient doesn’t know. She had some wicked foot surgery today, which went well. Tomorrow the perineal block (?) wears off and she’ll be in for a rough day. Since she’ll be off her feet for 8 weeks, I figure getting it to her this weekend will still be good!
