omg, that is AMAZING. my least favorite part of sewing after making button holes, is sewing on the buttons! that must have taken hours!

It sure did!  I would say...hmmm...worked on it in pieces here and there over at least a couple weeks, probably about 8-10 hours at least...I'm probably shorting myself on that!  LOL!
