A recent article in Vogue Patterns magazine (Oct/Nov 2011) shows you how to make your own leather toggles. I haven't tried them yet but they are on my "to-do" list for my wool winter coat. The article is by Kathryn Brenne.

I haven't looked but both Waechters and Sawyer Brook Fabrics have lots of buttons on their website. Sawyer Brook has a button matching service if you buy fabric from them and they might be willing to ship buttons if you send them a sample. Lots of yarn shops also sell buttons that are suitable for hand knit sweaters and toggles might be available in them too.
