Beautifying

In recent weeks, I haven't been doing an awful look of knitting (although I'm getting into the pink lacy scarf!). However, I have been doing odd bits of craftiness, such as this. I bought a linen jacket from Primark (or Primarni as my sister calls it!) and the buttons promtly fell off. Well, what did I expect for £12. So anyway, I made some replacements with fabric left over from a custom shop order. I just love it!! Great customisation for only half an hours' work!

You star! You've turned that jacket into something rather special. I've stopped buying bargain fashion. I can't stand the disappointment of the inevitable button suicide anymore.

Love the buttons! Someone had good taste in choosing the fabric. :-) One of these days I'll learn to sew and maybe be as crafty as you!

Yes, you've turned a purchased garment into something special! Very nice touch! (And, good work on the custom order, too!)

Cheers to you for making do, and getting a better jacket in the process!

I just can't buy stuff from Primark. I just can't. They always look cheap on me.

It's amazing how much flair something as simple as new buttons can add. Perfect choice. You really have an eye for putting things together.
