Crafty Cardi...

The Crafty Fish (that be me) loves to wear a Crafty item or three...
and, as a retailer of the finest buttons known to woman, i couldn't possibly wear a cardigan with 7 plain grey buttons down the front! It just doesn't feel right, ya know? Very, ridiculously, overly happy with my new little lambswool Cardi, i smothered it in rainbow buttons...
This look is perhaps far too 'cute' for many. It is a good job I am a lady who cares little for popular taste and fashion. This little crafty endeavour made my week much more colourful and satisfying.

And.... STILL very much in-love with Lu Summers fabric 'Avenue'.... i have been making little "My House" Brooches for the PaperFish shop. I just adore this little house. And i love the colours red / cream / blue together.

I tried to echo the 'smallness' of the house by using a smaller button embellishment. I am usually the crafter who adds a HUGE button to everything! but, in this case, discretion in button choice won favour.
Ooooh, i like it and i have worn it lots.
I am going to make some different colourways.....
And I'm going off to do that ....now! x

You look delicious!
I wish I could say my crafting gear was as glamorous, my 'Mummy uniform' of knackered slacks and mis-shapen scoop neck t-shirts doesn't really do me justice, note to self *must try harder*.

I say,the more buttons the better, and lots of colour just means that they will go with lots of things!

oh I really like the added colour to the cardi :D need the colour during the winter so I never understood why a lot of sweaters are dark colours

My teenage daughter did the same button trick on her black winter coat, with huge coloured ones! It's a great look x

I love the cardy! I think you should sew some more in between and make it look like you have a ton of buttons to do up on that little number!

The heart is lovely, I will be popping back to do a spot of fishing soon, can't wait to see your new items!
