She wanted them to look like some produced by a large high street store as she liked their look but couldn't afford their prices!!
I used some dusky pink faux silk dupion and after a lot of searching found buttons that were a great match.
The throws themselves were easy to make - 2 layers of fabric with a layer of wadding between - but instead of "traditional" quilting the buttons had to be sewn on to hold the 3 layers together.
As you all know, hand-sewing is not something I enjoy (in fact I usually try to avoid it as much as humanly possible!!) but in this case there was no getting away from it.
96 buttons later the throws were finished. PHEW!!
I was glad to hear that they were well received - that made the sore fingers all worth it.
