Buttons – Doing it Right!

August 23, 2013

So I finally finished knitting my Gramps Sweater for Bohdan! I’m so excited for him to wear it, especially on days like today when it feels a little cooler. This past weekend I was helping Caitlin with her booth at Fibrations, and I bought some fantastic ceramic buttons from  Pender Island button designer Wendy Dunnet.

 

I love the way buttons can totally MAKE a project, but sometimes sewing them on can be a total pain in the ass!  I found some great articles on sewing on buttons.  This and that are very thorough tutorial for sewing buttons with needle and thread. If you are a visual learner check out this youtube video.

 

If you have any other good tips, please share them!  Pictures to come soon of the finished gramps!
