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

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!
