I needed to find 2 sets of matching buttons to use as eyes on softies I had made. So, I went to my hoard of buttons, which looks like this:
You would think that with all these buttons, I’d easily be able to find a set of blue and a set of green buttons that would work as eyes, right? Well… we’d both be wrong. I ended up with this:
Not a pair to be had! I finally did find a set of blue, and settled on black instead of green. One day, when I have nothing else to do (or Little Moore gets old enough to sort buttons), I’m going to do this:
These buttons are from a stash that was passed to me by my Tante. She got them from a neighbor (she has awesome neighbors, by the way). That neighbor had put together sets of buttons… through safety pins, a paper clip, or piece of thread. How awesome!
Too bad she didn’t have any sets of little blue or green ones.
Expect Moore… soon!
