What are you most proud of? The winds howl this time of year in the midwest! In an effort to keep my shawls and scarves from blowing down the street, I made these from my button stash with a bit of elastic threaded through the button holes and tied in a knot. What advice would you give someone starting this project? So very simple and extremely effective. I love giganto buttons! Big, colorful and easy to store if you are a collector like me. Easy and affordable to purchase from local yarn shops I visit on my travels. Get out those gorgeous buttons, tie a bit of elastic through the holes and knot.
