I have been knitting myself a cap sleeved hooded cardigan from The Knitter magazine. I have almost finished the hood, and will soon be knitting the font bands, pockets bands and sleeve bands.
So.....I have been looking for suitable buttons.
As yet I haven't found any, apart from the ones which are used on the pattern, but at almost £7/button, that is more than a little steep.
It has crossed my mind that making my own buttons might be the best way. That way I can make them exactly how I want them, if they turn out right.
I think I will give it a go, after all, I have fimo and will not be loosing anything but my time trying to make some buttons.
