Fun with buttons! (And Fleece Pants)

For those of you who have been following for a while you know I'm in a book club and you also probably know that it's the best book club ever! We just finished reading Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and it was excellent. Well, last night was our annual Christmas Craft night and my friend Christine came up with the idea to make two adorable button crafts. The first is a wreath made out of buttons (simply string your buttons onto wire) and the second is a Christmas tree. (Buttons threaded onto twine in the shape of a tree) Aren't they adorable! The pictures below are of the finished ornaments hanging proudly on my tree.

Also, I just had to share this picture of Lilly because her outfit is so cute...

I purchased this aqua colored fleece at Joann's on black Friday for only $.70 (it was in the remnant bin which was an additional 75% off) I had enough to make Lilly these cute pants as well as a fleece hat. The pants matched this onesie she already had perfectly!

Don't you like the heart on the leg?
