Maybe I should back up.

Jennie came to us with a brilliant idea for a collaboration, and sent this box to Bristol and I:

JtP button box

Filled with button samples in different textures and glazes.

And collaboration began.  (Jennie joined us in card form)

We chose a yarn base. And narrowed down the button glaze and texture choices. And then I went home and developed 2 colours to coordinate. Bristol went home and activated her design brilliance superpower.  And Jennie fired up the kiln and buttoned herself senseless.

Yarn: Sheepshifter DK  in 2 colourways, exclusive to this kit: Electroshark Therapy and Nailed It!
