DIY Pottery Buttons
I first saw some pottery buttons at JoAnn Fabrics with a price tag of $3.99 a piece and while that isn't crazy expensive, I really liked the idea that I could make my buttons as well as my hat. I made a variety of buttons for 2 reasons, I didn't know what would look best on the hat that was still in my head at the time (obviously, I finished the hat in the meantime while they was being fired and glazed) and I wanted to have a bunch of buttons to have some friends choose between for a women's knitting/crocheting night.
I plan to make some more buttons, but these are a start. I will probably get to some more after I get some pottery Christmas presents done. Doing pottery is so much fun and I love creating things out of dirt, but it is time consuming and since I have to go in to the art center to use the pottery studio and they have limited open studio hours, it takes a while to get projects done, but they are getting done and I look forward to sharing more with you. I will be sharing a tutorial on how to make the slouchy loom knit hat in a future post as well.
