Buttons For Earwarmers

Hi there~
I have been knitting so much -and crocheting too-an awful lot of gifts for the Holidays!!

I made up these 2 earwarmers~ ( a free pattern you can find on ravelry)

I was looking for the perfect button to add to these, when I remembered some buttons I won from fellow Button Floozie, McAnaraks...(You can see that post here, and here's another post about their buttons here).


I thought I would need to find a button with a shank for the loop to fit securely around, and these didn't have one... but I thought they were too perfect for the headbands, so when I went to stitch them on, I just when up through the underside of the headband with the yarn, through the first and second hole, then wrapped the yarn around those 2 threads underneath the buttons, to make the buttons sit higher and make a sort of shank, and then took the yarn back to the underside of the headband and wove in the ends~Perfect!

Beautiful gifts. The new issue of Cloth Paper Scissors has button card houses and I know you could do a village or city,maybe. And I just downloaded a Button & Scissors game to my Kindle where you clip the buttons off the card, too fun. Always think of Button Floozies when 'anything button' appears.
