Buttoneer

in Fitted Knits - Puffed Sleeved Feminine Cardigan

So, I thought I would be smart and circumvent the whole button sewing process, so I bought the Buttoneer.  If I was actually thinking about what I was doing, I would have realized that I was just setting myself up for failure and disappointment.

There is nothing wrong with the product itself…just the way I intended to use it. The way the little fasteners hook the button on is just not conducive for knitwear. So, it took putting all 8 buttons on the Puffed Sleeve Cardigan and unbuttoning to see the error of my ways. So, it’s back to the needle and thread for sewing on the buttons to my knitwear.

I am going to keep the Buttoneer for when I have an emergency with my non-hand knit clothes. It is actually kind of a neat little tool, but just not for knits. Oops. Guess it’s back to Joann’s for orange thread.
