I initially used a clasp to close the front, but it was small and didn't complement the piece.
Then I remembered that I had a silver button left over from the Christmas presents I made for my sisters. I think this looks a lot better.
Now I just have to write up the pattern. I've done a little but need some serious quiet time to be able to sit and get on with it without little hands interrupting me. I also have to take a great picture, either modelled by yours truly or I may ask one of my sisters.
