These are some buttons I have been collecting for baby garments. I bought the bunny buttons about 7 years ago, when I was knitting this precious little jacket.
I know, right?
I borrowed this pic from the Yarnspiration website which offers the free pattern here. Well, the baby I was knitting for was really not someone I knew very well, and so, when I didn't finish before baby was born, it got forgotten, and I think I just sent a card. And so it languished.....
Recently, I pulled out my stash of baby yarn and I rediscovered the jacket pieces, waiting to be seamed, edged, buttoned and pomponed. (What? That's not a word?)
After the picture was taken, I found the missing sleeve. Whew! But I didn't find it before nearly finishing a new one I was whipping out with the leftover yarn.
Now, here's where you come in....What? you say, What have I got to do with it? No way am I seaming that thing!
No, no, no. I've finished the seaming, I'm working on the edging and I need to make a decision and I need your help. It's all about the buttons!
Now, look again at the pic above; I had originally chosen the bunny buttons for this sweet little jacket. But another set I really like is the little green flower buttons. I must really like them because on Tuesday, I stopped at JoAnn Fabrics in Auburn on my way home from Stratton, to take a look at, among other things, little baby buttons. See what I found?
See anything familiar? Yup. I'm consistent. I bought the same buttons twice.
Here they are in a lousy picture made lousier by my amateur editing, but the point is that I have such cute ribbons that could be laced through matching bootees to wear with the jacket, either the gingham or the dots.
And here are the bunny buttons:
And now a quick peek of other little goodies I'm sending to sweet little Marie Rose.
Awaiting blocking and ribbons..
And if you read this post, you'll understand why I had to get this little outfit.
P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment about which buttons look best....Thanks!!
