what is it with sewing on buttons?

new summer hatsailor pants  A new hat and new pants  for summer.

Finally I sewed on the buttons to finish off my one and only project for the most recent KCWC. Can someone please explain to me why the simple task of attaching buttons can push the end date of a project back weeks? People there have been projects in the past that I have cut out and constructed in a night only to have the final task of sewing the buttons on take weeks. I can’t explain it, can you?

  1. I think you should hang a picture of this adorable girl with her adorable pants and great buttons in your sewing space as motivation for next time. Very cute with the hat too.

  2. It's always the simple little things... maybe it's because there are always lots of little things? The pants look awesome :)

  5. I know exactly how you feel!!
    Was explaining to a non crafty co-worker yesterday how I can get the knitting for a project can take a couple if days, but the sewing in of ends can take a couple of weeks. She didn't understand ha ha!

  7. Perhaps its something like reading the last page of a book - it's final, and a bit sad, because you get so engaged and connected and don't want it to be over. Lucky there is always another project and another book for that matter! BTW - The pants and hat are sensational, and the buttons are just perfect - worth the wait xx
