Still sitting in my coat - but now I have a button

I have had a few suggestions that I should add a button on my blog about the white shirt project.

Now my graphic design skills are nil to none so after work I came home and, coat still on, sat down at the dining room table and made up a super amateurish button.

So now all of you who want to make their own shirts along with me can copy this and paste it to your own blog. (If anyone is more skilled than I am at this sort of thing and want to come up with a prettier icon - be my guest).

I guess the next thing to do would be to make a list or link to all of those who are interested in this project. I am, of course, as interested, if not more interested, in what other sewers are going to make, than my own projects.

Might try to figure how to do that out too. 

But first I have to take off my coat.

Your button is perfect! I hope you have your coat off by now :). I don't have a white shirt. I need a white shirt. Count me in! Maybe... Yes, I will get one made. I won't promise more as my sewing list already pretty long.

Perfect button!

And have a glass of wine too!
I don't have a blog, but count me in the list. But I can wait until you get your coat off (and your wine poured) before you start on that!

I think the button looks great,

This is a great button! I found you via Ann, of Ann's Fashio Studio,and I'm going to add your button to my blog and join in...
Oh, I've recently made two white shirts (in the last two weeks), so I'm going to semi-cheat and include those in my ten white shirts... hehe

Um... I can't find the button!?

The button is the little picture at the top with shirt front and back view. Realize it doesn't really look like a button, but the image can be copied and pasted onto another blog. Hope this makes sense.
