If You Can't Buy It, Make It

My coat, which is blocking (and might take a week to dry), needs buttons. You'd think that with my vast button collection, there'd be something that suits it, and there is--sort of. But I'm not charged up about the choices. The pocket linings are in a soft greeny/gold.

So, I decided to take matters into my own hands (literally) and have a go at making polymer clay buttons. Here's what came out of my oven earlier this aft.

The poison green mohair to the left is calling to me just now. It must be the premature arrival of spring (not that anyone's complaining!) New scarf?
