it was a good idea...
So, I don't think that I ever showed these buttons that I made for the Feeling Stitchy button swap. If I did, forgive me. Anyway, making these was such fun, that I figured I should do more of this.
Which reminded me that I have a wonderful button maker. But not the kind of buttons that you sew on...no, I have a pinback button maker. And I have lots of supplies. So why not use that to make some fabric covered pinback buttons?!?
Today I pulled out my supplies and the button maker pieces, and made these! I really like how they look. Well...from the front.
Uh, yeah, so the fabric doesn't get caught in the metal parts as well as paper does. I tried to make sure that it would, but on all three tries, at least part of it was loose. Grr. Does anyone have any tips or ideas to make this work better? My machine is a badge-a-minit 1-1/4", with a hand held press.
