I am no expert so this is just the way I make them, they are fun and quick to make which is what I like. Although you may not be the lucky winner of the Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway hopefully I have inspired you to try these out for yourself.
Thank you for all the wonderful comments from the giveaway and welcome to new followers and readers!! I do appreciate each and everyone of you!
Winner of the giveaway announced at the end of the tutorial :)
Here is the basic kit you need to get started to make wonderful buttons. The tool, button tops with shanks and button backs ~
Other bits you will need are a pair of fabric scissors, a pencil and a pair of paper scissors ~
On a flat surface press down firmly the top and the bottom should click together ~
Remove the red top and you will find a neat little button, carefully pop this out ~
These are the buttons popped out with the button shank attached ~
This kit is fab for making magnets! Take the top part of the button and remove the button shank with a small pair of pliers. This is very easy to do. The button top on the left is how it comes and on the right is after I have removed the shank ~
Now for the winner of the SMS giveaway (using the random number thingy!)......
Congratulations to #42
