button up

spins and needles tonight. My original plan for tonight's craftiness was to bring some knitting, but when I came across this button cuff tutorial last week it was too cute to resist. So, armed with a huge bags of buttons from walmart (I know...but it was the ONLY place in town to sell bags of bulk buttons) and some good old DMC floss, I crafted the bracelet above.

It was surpringly simple to do once you got the hang of it - weave weave, loop, knot, start again with a new button.

Andrea challenged us to make sock dogs, too. I brought socks, but just never got around to it. Maybe next month?

ps. I'm now taking part in crafternoon, sharing a table with lana. Craftiness ahoy! Please come.
