I've decided that the things that make my projects "special" or just worth sharing aren't the techniques I use. It's the unique items and materials that I find to redo. Therefore, I'll spare you the details of how I mastered the skill of button adding. Here's the quick version!
There's an old rag of a dress that I got for $2 because I liked the shape and it fit really well. That bow was all ripped up and faded, and the decorative buttons were broken. Oh, and there's a big, ugly rip on the thigh area!
For a more detailed (long-winded) version of my process, check out the full post on my blog, Craft, Thrift, or Die. I'll tell you how I made that hole disappear.
