Button Choices



Yesterday I mentioned a sort of 'game' involving your votes, so here goes....
I made this bag this week, and couldn't choose which button to use.
The plan is to attach it to the front middle of the flap as a decorative embellishment. I just think it needs a little something extra.
And I thought it'd be fun to ask all of you : )
Here are the choices....


Left to right:
1) a sparkly little green one
2) a green sort of opalescent with a few little sparkles on the underside that show thru.
3) the one I'm leaning towards, a clear greenish swirly rectangular one with rounded corners.
4) a big green plain one.
5) all 4! I'd put the big on in the middle and the others on the sides.

I just can't decide and thought it'd be a fun way to decide, by asking all of my blogging buddies!
Please vote by leaving a comment and I'll tally up the choices over let's say, the next 3 days... and as soon as it's attached I'll post the photos here : )

I managed to get this done (for me)- and a few more goodies that I listed in the shop as well, so I'm feeling a little more productive than usual.


I'm already working on another tote of my own design for the shop ~ Gotta keep up the momentum ; )


Happy Crafting : )

I love this bag too!! I am really perplexed about which button looks best. I say put em all on ;-) You could do a quirky bunch of them with the biggest being the fastener and the rest for show. I dunno- but it's AWESOME!

So cute! I'd go with option 4 or 5!

Deedra said...

SO PRETTY!!! Love the colours!!

Laurie said...

It's so cute and I love the color. Of those choices, I'd use the largest one, or else your other option of the largest in the middle with the smaller around them. (Oh, by the way, your link on Button Floozies didn't work for me, got an error.) Thanks for letting us be part of your art!

Pallas said...

Your tote is so cute! I like all your buttons as well, but lean toward the largest button #4.

Thanks everyone- it's looking like the big button is in the lead a bit...
Laurie,thanks for the heads up-I'll go check that out now:)

Jody Blue said...

I'm a button floozy, too. :) I love your bag! I vote for the big one, too. It stands out nicely against the fabric.
I'm loving your blog and etsy shop. If I had some extra pennies, I would *so* pick up a few things... Also, I read your post about the free Moo business cards, and I picked some up. Yippee! Thanks for the link. :)

I like option 4 or 5 :)

Maria Isabel said...

I like the big one, the bigger the better!
And the one you made for yourself is adorable!

Phoenix Peacock said...

I like the big button also, or all four. Although if it is all four I like the way you have them layed out now, rather than the large one in the center.
Anyway you choose your buttons, I think everyone will still agree, what a cute bag!

Cassie said...

i would stack the sparkly green one (far left) on top of the big plain green one (far right). I love stacked buttons!

Martina Voigt-Schmid said...

Somehow i just LOVE ruffles at the moment, so this is really sweet. Use all the buttons ;)

Bonnie said...

Love the bag!

I vote for # 5.

andrea creates said...

You guys are all so sweet for replying :) I don't hang out with too many ccreative types so I appreciate all your feedback.
It's really interesting to see which buttons you prefer.
Thanks!

marian said...

oh i agree with Cassie..stacked buttons look FABULOUS! but you know whatever you decide will look fab coz the design of the bag lends itself to pretty much any style of button embellishment.
i love that sweet little ruffle and green is my fav colour too btw :)

Ammie said...

This is adorable. :) I like #2 & #4.
