Fantastic Little Button

I picked this up at Quilt Market in Houston at Halloween.  I’m a sucker for a Scottie dog, for one thing, and for an enormous hip button, for another.  At nearly 2″ across, I haven’t the slightest idea what I’ll do with it–I might actually have to design an entire sewing project around this one button.

And is it just me, or does the Scottie dog seem somehow seasonally appropriate?  Maybe it’s the plaid?

    I see this as the fastener for a cape or scarf…

    Yes – the plaid and his green scarf make him totally seasonally appropriate! Jona G. covered a chair in the cutest scottie dog fabric one time…I never liked them until I saw her cute chair! Now? Totally love the Scottie Dog!

    Definitely Christmas-y! It’s the plaid and the little green scarf.

    I’m thinking along the same lines as Camille here… I see a black capelet with red plaid lining and maybe some green rick-rack detail trimming the lining… No! A green underlining on the collar to match his little green scarf! That’s what I would do.

    Actually, I would probably let it sit in a box for a year before actually doing anything with it. But you have better habits.
