Huon pine

My lovely friend Theresa went to Tasmania for a weekend and brought me back three wonderful Huon pine buttons. Inspired by this fantastic new acquisition, I decided to go on the hunt for a pattern that could show off my new little friends.

I decided on a pinafore-ish pattern by burda young fashion #7739 and combined it with a scandalously red coat fabric, and an outfit is born.

It’s starting to get cold down here in the Southern hemisphere and this lil’ number and I are going to be the best of friends.
My lovely new Huon pine buttons love their new home.

    Love this! It’s the beginning of a super hot summer here in Florida, but when it gets colder I’d love to make something like this.

    It’s adorable! I love the pic when you’re throwing the leaves in the air :) It will enjoy the autumn air.

    Absolutely gorgeous. I love little girly numbers and this is spot on! I love that you created something so gorgeous around 3 buttons. 3 fabulous buttons, mind!
