Vintage buttons ♡♡♡

I have got my act together and finished the little salmon pink jacket to match the little hat I had already made. I was in a bit of a quandary over the buttons??? All of the non-essential shops are currently closed. What was I to do for buttons??? And then I remembered the jar of buttons my great aunt gave me. Now normally I would not have been as daring with my choice of button but I am quite pleased with the contrast of the pearly buttons against the pink. These had never been used and looking at the card date back to the fifties or sixties. They are non toxic and laundry safe I hasten to add.

The sun has made the pink brighter than it actually is 🌞

The hat and jacket are made from Sirdar pattern 264 Gorgeous Babies Knitting Book using double moss stitch and embellished with blanket stitch.

Just waiting for baby to come along so that I can pop in the post 📮

Woolly wishes,

Jane ♡♡♡

  1. Beautiful! I have a pouch of old buttons. Some are from my grandma. Some I have harvested from old clothes. You never know when you’ll need a button!

  2. That is so cute! And a jar of buttons?! I’d say that’s a jar of possibilities! How awesome to have had that little stash when you needed it!
