so the story begins:
i signed up to go on our school's fine arts trip to chicago (BEST 4 DAYS OF MY LIFE) and i needed a warrrrrrrm coat. So i felted the wool, added an extra layer of fabric in between it and the *bright* purple lining, and needed buttons. I saw none that matched the color of the lining and were the size/style i wanted, so i thought, hey, why not make them myself? I found sculpey in silver and purple and swirled it together and TA DA! it turned out great. and warm.



button detail:
