Comments: This is the third prototype of my design. Checking to make sure I've got it right. This is the back.



Here is a close up of the stitch pattern. It's a 2-color Moss stitch.



I had a very hard time finding buttons to go with these colors. I found these ones online at Embellishment Buttons on Etsy.



It's not what I really wanted, but they'll do I guess.
