I finished Elliot’s sweater a couple of days ago. I waited patiently for the buttons to arrive. I found the perfect buttons from GloriaPatre Spin N Knit. The buttons were shipped off soon after I placed the order, I just had to wait for shipping from Canada.
Today was the day! The buttons arrived and I sewed them on. The timing was ideal, as I’m taking the kids to get their pictures taken tomorrow.
There’s only one problem.
Now that the buttons are here I realize that they are too small. I made an emergency run to JoAnn’s tonight. I left disappointed when I was not able to find toggle buttons that worked with the sweater.
I just ordered longer buttons from GloriaPatre Spin N Knit. I hope they are here before Christmas, as I would like Elliot to have a Christmas sweater with the right size of buttons.
As for photos tomorrow, I’m going to go with the too small buttons. I think it should stay shut, and it will look nice with what Audrey is wearing.
Do you have a button resource that you recommend?
