OK, so. I need help deciding because… well… I’m indecisive.
This sweater has 3 button holes, but it turns out that I only have 2 of the buttons I had intended to use (these adorable little vintage stick-buttons from the button collection I inherited from my Grandma a few years ago). Bummer.
So, now I’ve got three other sets that could work:
Blue ceramic buttons I made years ago when I worked for a ceramics artist who let me put my own projects in the kiln when I fired the tiles we were actually paid to make:
Plain creamy sage(ish) green buttons that I’m pretty sure my grandma cut off of a blouse in the 90s.
These slightly shimmery caramel-colored buttons from (I can only assume) 1976.
Or, should I just go with the original stick buttons, and just pretend that I didn’t make 3 button holes? It’s not like it’ll ever be all the way buttoned-up anyway.
I think I’m currently leaning toward the caramel ones, but will they make my kid look like an extra from Laverne & Shirley?
Help me decide!
