A few weeks ago my Aunt asked me if I was able to make some buttons for a large cushion that she had knitted. I had never made buttons before but I thought that they sounded like a fun project.
She sent me some of the yarn that she had used so I could colour match and gave approximate measurements – they needed to be about 3cm round. The cushion was a present for a 14 year old girl so I threw in a little glitter clay and had fun. I came up with a few ideas but the spots and stripes won.
Picture is a little ropey, sorry!
I had photos of the finished cushion last week. I am so pleased with how they look and the knitter and recipient of the cushion are pleased too and that means everything.
So lovely to see something I have made being used.
Oh my god these are so cute! And these colours! *heart eyes*
Thank you. Purple is just the nicest colour 😃
Those a beautiful Hannah, Imaginative designs and you have done a superb job on the colour match (purples are never easy to match). You should be justifiably proud of them.
Thank you so much. Purple and red are so hard to match/work with.
Ohhh well done you clever thing! The cushion looks perfect with the buttons. Somehow I don’t think that cushion would look half as nice with bog standard buttons available in shops and markets.
And … just think of the ‘brag’ quality to that cushion… “The buttons? Oh I had those made especially for this cushion” (said in a Mrs. Bouquet voice).
Love them Hannah. Brilliant. ~ Cobs/ xxx
Ha ha – love the Mrs Bucket/Bouquet voice 🤣 I was so pleased when I saw the photos. I thought they looked rather good on the cushion.
Hope all is well with you. Hxx
