What can I say: they’re cute, they make me smile, and they keep our clothes together. But dang if they don’t love to fall off.
Maybe I suffer from hulk-style super strength, but I have a feeling that I am not the only one who keeps losing buttons. Sitting in jars with change and bits of paper, spare buttons permeate my room.
The time for change has come! At our next mending night, we will make it our mission to reattach all the plastic, bone, glass or metal bits that keep our cardigans closed. Let’s make a pact to pull out all those double-breasted blazers that we never wear for that one missing button and restore them to former glory. We owe it to the garments that live relegated to ever growing piles of things “to be fixed.”
As always, feel free to bring any garment or other sewing projects you have to work on.
