Overalls, buttons and dyed yarn

I attempted these for a sweet mama for a trade.

It was an overall pattern made by me, I made the buttons (my first time) and dyed the yarn (w/wiltons). The owl on the bib was a design inspiration from another knittin' mama--I used her idea w/permission

Had major yarn shortage issues--I tried my best to make it work! The project was loads of fun but I've learned that you should dye way more yarn then you need!!! Too much is way better than too little!
