Different colours

At last I am away from pink and white--- these are made from one piece of fabric and it has 1 and 1/4 inch stripes-the yellow stripe has white spots and the white stripe has yellow spots.
I folded the fabric for the toggles so that only the white showed on one and the yellow on the other.
With the button I folded it so that the yellow is in the centre and the white on either side.
I found it very difficult to stitch on this fabric due to the make up of the very tight weave.
I have another toggle rolled and ready to stitch which has half yellow and half white on it but the thought of having to use a small set of pliers to pull the needle through the fabric again has put me off for the moment.
I don't really need another one do I?
