I know it may seem a little silly, but I'm totally in love with these crochet covered colored buttons. I'm in love with them because I made them, and they perfectly match the dress I made with the same colors as my garden on a mid-August day. Most of the time, I'm quite happy with the things I make (though there have been many failures and forever-in-progress projects). Sometimes they evoke a sense of wonder even: "Wow! Look! I made this!". But these little buttons make me especially happy. They're made out of nothing, really, just plain old buttons, bits of embroidery floss and a touch of creativity.
Once I came up with an inspiration for upcycling those drab old black buttons, it only took about twenty minutes to do the job: I dug out some embroidery floss, a small crochet hook, and improvised a circular pattern, which worked quite well - though as often happens, the second button turned out much better than the first!
What do you think?
PS I wrote some project notes in my Ravelry page here.
