Thank you, everyone! I'm really happy with the result; I'm far from professional, so rest assured it can be done, with some practice and patience.
I also have to say, that hat's making me deeply envious.
Oh, right, the hat! I forgot to mention the hat: I got that from a blogging friend, Lisa
. It's proved to be far more than just a schoolgirl hat!
I wish I could get a better look at the buttons that your grandfather made.
I'll take a photo once I get home from school.
