The buttons are amazing! Such a small detail, and yet I think it adds so much to the coat.

I love the collar. So creative, and a definite improvement!
villeford added the project Teapot Cozy
Cozy for my teapots — large enough to fit any of them. It’s really simple and I didn’t do anything special with the pattern, but it’s my first completed project on here, and I’m happy with it.
