I've needed to sew a loose button on one of my favorite shirts for a few weeks, so tonight I stopped putting it off and grabbed the shirt and my old Halston wig box that contains my rudimentary sewing kit and sat down with a needle and thread while the news was on. Thank God it wasn't a Friday night or I would sound officially pathetic. The good news is, I ended up with a new sweater! Kind of.
|One, two, three, done!|
|Stuck the needle back in the old pincushion...|
|Where did this button come from? All the other extra buttons are in the little envelopes they come in. It's metal, like from a jacket or coat maybe? (Also, can my fingerprints be copied from a closeup like this?)|
|Then I remembered a long forgotten sweater that I believe I've even worn (shhh) with the button missing. I had no idea they were metal! Oh well. Now I have a "new" cardigan to wear AND a repaired favorite shirt. Not bad for a Thursday night.|
|And all my sewing stuff is back safely in my old Halston wig box.|
I can sleep easy.
