Anyone have a pattern/technique for creating custom closures? I just finished a scarflet which needs buttons, and a funky hat out of Noro blossom in coordinating colors. I'd love to use the Noro to make closures -- preferably something oblong/oval, because the holes in the lace are about dime-sized, and I think that has the best change of success.

The Noro is mostly animal fiber, so it should be feltable.

are you looking for buttonhole ideas, or something like making your own "frog" closures? (Ve haf teknologie vor all dees, dahlink)

I know I came across a couple of *very* good directions on websites for 1800s frog closures a few years back. Unfortunately... wrong computer... and until I get a new computer, no access to the links I had. And I haven't made any myself in over 9 years, so can't remember the ins and outs.

If you want, I can check to see if anyone else on h-costume still has a bookmark for any of them.

Somebody just recently put up a tutorial on how to make the knots out of icord for an oriental coat. I'll see if I can find it ...
