Decisions, decisions.

10 Jun

I’ve finally finished sewing together the Undercurrent cardi (maybe half an hour ago), and now it’s time for buttons. But which ones?

A couple of years ago, Tech Support picked up a drawer full of assorted vintage buttons at a garage sale, and we sold the vast majority of them on eBay, but not before I bogarted all the best ones, among them a whole whack of natural shell ones. I have known from the very beginning of this cardi that they were just the thing, but now I’m at the point where I have to make a decision:

Big or small?


They are much less yellow in real life – more ivory flecked with pink and grey.


My heart says big…


… but my head says small.

So I’m putting it to you, my lovelies. Leave a comment and make up my mind for me. Then I can sew on the buttons and take some pics and be on to the next cardi.

    IMHO. Big. The little ones look lost.

    Go with your heart. You don’t want to sigh regretfully every time you put it on.

    Didn’t you already make the button holes? How big are they?

    If not, how are you going to make them?

    I agree, the bigger buttons look better, but the holes are key

      The holes are the good old reliable one-row buttonhole, and stretchy enough that both sizes of button fit through.
