|I chose this button as part of the fastening system for the bag.|
Embroidered with thread close to the color of the lining, and stitched such that a thicker loop can slip over it easily. (More about that later.)
|This is the loop--a narrow section of the non-cabled part of the sweater.|
It is just pinned in under the lining.
|The lining is still just pinned in, as I needed to make those decisions about the strap and fastener before being able to stitch down the lining.|
