Buttons, Buttons, Who's Got The Buttons????

Well, as I have posted in several earlier posts, I have been on the hunt for the 'perfect button' for several of my bags. Then, in the back of my mind, I remembered a 'button jar' that my mom had that was just full of fun old buttons. My daughter happened to be visiting my mom, so I asked her to send the jar home with my daughter. What fun it has been going through all the old buttons!!!

Every time I pour the jar of buttons out, I find new favorites. And instead of looking for the perfect button for a completed bag, I'm starting to think of a bag that will match a fun button!! I'm thinking it's going to be very hard to turn this jar back over to my mom!! I guess I'll have to put my name on the bottom....

Speaking of completed bags, Here are a few that I don't think that I have posted yet. The first is my 3rd Booga bag. This is a fun pink!

And my first Sophie Bag. I love this bag. I knit it with Knitpicks WOTA Bulky and it felted up beautifully.

On that note, I leave you with a parting shot of Sebastian. He is standing tall and proud!

Until next time.......

I love all your felted bags! How much of the Bulky WOTA did you use for the Sophie Bag? I'm just about to place an order with them and that bag is on my list of Christmas gifts to knit.

I used 1 1/2 skeins of the WOTA bulky yarn for the sophie bag. I did it single strand. I am going to post photos of two more Sophie bags tomorrow.. check back.
