Clothes May Make the Man... (Adriana)

But all a sweater needs is buttons!

Do you remember way back in February when I made Trellis for my friend to give to her friend who was having a baby? Well the baby was born in March but the sweater wasn't officially finished until recently. It needed buttons, and not any ordinary buttons would do. They had to be uber cool buttons (says me).

Want to see some magic?

Become the cutest sweater on earth!

I am so in love with those little bumblebees I even put one on top of the hat.
I didn't want to stop there. I wanted to bedeck this little sweater with millions of bumblebee buttons! Instead I settled for taking some cool pictures of them.

Well that's all for today. See you tomorrow! Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
