Hello, lover!

I made a curtain for my one kitchen window. Since our kitchen has an accidental aqua and red theme, I used red and white houndstooth fabric but couldn't for the life of me find the right shade of aqua fabric or ribbon to accent with so I got some cute buttons to go sew on there.

I can't figure out a way to make the buttons look good!

I have 10 vintage aqua colored buttons on their way to me and I have 10 other aqua buttons (and a few pink) to put on there. Any ideas? I thought about just making them cascade down one side but it didn't look quite right (maybe because all the buttons aren't here?) I also didn't like them in rows. The shape of the curtain is just a rectangle.

Help a sister out?

well, you could try making them into  a shape-such as that of a wave-or have them zigzag down the side of the curtain

I would absolutely love to have a personal swap! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest

Not sure if it will be any help to you, but my curtain with bottons is a tab curtain so there is a button at that bottom of each tab, that makes them evenly spaced out across the top of the curtain.

What about a swirl of buttons on the 2 lower corners?  Or a wave across the bottom and a cluster in the centre?  Or sewing them to make flower or star shapes?  Maybe from left to right, about 1/4 or 1/5 of the way from the top?  I'd love to see what you come up with!

I just realized the original post was a year ago (January 2009) not a few weeks ago (January 2010).  I hope you made your curtain by now!
