Vogue 8259 - Trims & Buttons -Blues

** Thank you so much Birgitte, Anne, Lindsay and Paco for your help and offers. I truly appreciate your thoughtfulness :)
After yesterday's post, I've been playing around - allot - with the white trim and also making trim from the bouclé fabric, however I didn't come up with anything I liked.
I had these buttons and trim for another project, and when I tried them with this blue/white bouclé fabric, well I kind-a like it :)
The trim is a variegated color that actually blends very nicely. When the light reflects on the buttons, the blue of the bouclé fabric comes out in the buttons!
The buttons look goldish in the picture (on my screen), however they are actually an antiqued looking silver.
Fabric,trim and buttons all seem to just fit together! I'm happy. Now I can carry on :)
