I hoard ribbon. And mismatched buttons. And other bits and baubles. I think most of my readers are crafters, so I’m sure you all have a drawer, box, or basket full of the same goodies.
Let me start off by showing you the fabulous buttons that, thankfully, fit the buttonholes of the sweater:
They originally came from my Mommom’s stash. I have the exact amount I need (six) and they’re just what I was looking for.
Now for the bonnet’s ribbon choices:
a. 1/4″ ivory (somewhat silky, a little bit stiff)
b. 3/8″ ‘velvet’ ivory
c. 3/8″ pale pink (silky)
d. 5/8″ ivory grosgrain (the stiffest option)
e. 1″ light gray (very soft and silky)
And here are the ribbons and bonnet together:
So which would you choose?
