Thank you for all your kind messages about my yellow dress, I was pleased some of you may attempt a zip in the future. I found this pretty crochet button on pinterest and just had to make a few to use at my crochet classes.
I have also purchased stick pins to put them on so that they can be used to decorate sunhats, bags, coats etc. I am really getting down my enormous button stash now.
Here is the link on pinterest. Try some, they are fun. Jo x
