How-To Alter a Halter Top Swimsuit with KAM Plastic Snaps July 27 2022

We bought this cute swimsuit for my daughter a little while ago. The swimsuit is totally adorable, but both she and I felt it tended to slip a little too far down in the front as the day went along. KAM plastic snaps to the rescue! We turned her halter top swimsuit into a standard strapped swimsuit in just a few seconds with KAM plastic snaps.

Supplies:

(Original Halter Top - Back Style)

First, we decided that we wanted the ends to crisscross and tuck into the back of the swimsuit, to give the illusion that the straps were sewn in place. We also wanted to leave to halter top feature in case she wanted to wear the straps tied up when sunbathing.  

We used G100 - Marina (Blue) to coordinate with the swimsuit's warm sea blue color. Because we wanted the straps to tuck into the suit, we installed the KAM snap Cap and Socket on the back of the swimsuit with the Cap facing out. We, then, installed the KAM snap Cap and Stud on the swimsuit strap so that the Stud faced out.

Then we simply crisscrossed the straps and snapped them in place. It's a snap!

We are pleased with how it turned out. It looks like it was always meant to be a strapped swimsuit and it can easily be converted back into a halter top at a moments notice.

Tada! Time to go lounge at the swimming pool!

I Like Big Buttons! Family Vacation 2022 July 20 2022

Our I Like Big Buttons! family is going on vacation. 

It's that time of year where we push PAUSE for a week, so that we can spend some real time with our kids outside of the I Like Big Buttons! business routine. A few days where the business doesn't consume our time and energies.

So here's the heads up, if you have been putting off an order, now is the time to make it. We will be accepting orders and shipping until July 29th at 3pm PT and won't reopen until August 9th. Any and all orders made between the evening of July 29th through August 9th will ship out August 10th.

We also will be off Social Media and out of internet range for most of the week, meaning any product or order questions you have won't be answered until we return on August 9th, as we will be enjoying quality time with our family.

Thank you for understanding as we give our patient kiddos some much deserved Dad/Mom attention and time.

Gena and the I Like Big Buttons! Crew

How-To: Magnetic Pin Cushion/Needle Holder July 13 2022

Supplies:

  • 1 Completed Size 75 (1 7/8 inch / 48 mm) Fabric Cover Button
  • Fabric Of Your Choice
  • 1x Standard Round Magnet (Approximately 3/4" Round)
  • E6000, Hot Glue, or comparable adhesive

I Like Big Buttons! - Picture Tutorial Below:

1.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank. *TIP* Our All-In-One Cover Button Template makes creating the right size circle of fabric a breeze.

2.  Put your fabric piece in the larger assembly tool piece (RIGHT SIDE DOWN). When you look into the tool you want to see the back of the fabric.

3. Glue the magnet inside the back of the Cover Button with Hot Glue or E6000.

4.  Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.

5.  Press the cover button edges down into the tool. *TIP* To make it easier on my fingers, I use a sharpie marker to apply pressure.

6.  Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front. *TIP* If the cover button will be subject to repeated tugging from the back, you may want to add a little e6000 adhesive before attaching the back.

7.  Take the smaller piece of the assembly tool and with the open side down place it on the button back.

8.  Press down. You may hear a pop when the last bit of the button back slips into place. If you take the tool out and the button is not completely secured, just put it back in and press down again. *TIP* I often use a flat piece of wood to apply pressure, again to save my fingers. It also helps to avoid the button back going in at an angle.

9.  When you take the small assembly tool piece off, the fabric edges will be secured underneath the button back.

9.  Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece.

10.  Tada! Now you have an attractive Pin Cushion/Needle Holder for your sewing room.

Homemade Donut Recipe from ILikeBigButtons.com Kitchen June 03 2022

🍮 I Like Big Buttons! Homemade Donuts 🍮

From: Gena Bee’s Kitchen

There are two ways to approach this recipe, the easy way and the almost as easy way; one requires a bread machine and one a trip to the store.

Ingredients for Bread Machine:

  • 1 cup of Water
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 1/4 cup of Bread Flour (yellow bag usually)
  • 1/4 cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 3-4 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 1 teaspoon of Salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon of Rapid Rise Yeast (for bread machines)

Big Daddy Fryer or Medium, Heavy-Bottomed Pot on Stove:

  • Crisco or Vegetable Oil (We use a fryer so I use Crisco because it sets back up and can be reused a few times before it needs to be replaced.)

Bread Machine Directions:

My bread machine has a quick dough option. It takes about 45 minutes to knead and mix and warm and knead it again or something like that. I usually walk away :). When it is done, I leave it in the bread machine for 15 more minutes and let it rise to make the yeast more relaxed and easy to roll.

***Alternative: 1 frozen loaf of Rhodes bread, thawed and rolled out will do the same thing.  :)


Donuts:

  1. Plop the dough on a lightly dusted counter and roll it out to about 1/2" to 3/4". Using a donut cutter, or in a pinch, a large cup or the lid for a canning jar and a small cup about an inch in diameter to cut the center out. I often leave the center slightly attached. This helps it to hold more frosting when you are frosting them to eat. :)
  2. Place the cut out donut blanks on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I also toss all the scraps on the sheet, my kiddos love the tidbits as much as the full donuts.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 45-60 minutes until they double in size.
  4. Heat up the Big Daddy Fryer or a medium, heavy-bottomed pan with about 2-3 inches of oil to 375 F.
  5. Carefully lower 2-3 donuts into the oil and cook on one side for 1-2 minutes, or until golden. Then cook on the other side for 1 minute or less, until golden.
  6. Drain fried donuts on a wire rack set over a large tray or on paper towels.
  7. Once they have cooled, you can embellish them however you like. 

I Like Big Buttons! Kiddos Favorite Frosting Options:

  • Granulated Sugar (Roll in)
  • Chocolate Frosting
  • Coconut Pecan Frosting (German Chocolate Cake Frosting)
  • Cream Cheese Frosting with Sprinkles

Cinnamon Roll Recipe from ILikeBigButtons.com Kitchen May 17 2022

🍮 Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting 🍮

From: Gena Bee’s Kitchen

There are two ways to approach this recipe, the easy way and the almost as easy way; one requires a bread machine and one a trip to the store.

 

Ingredients for Bread Machine:

  • 1 cup of Water
  • 1 Egg
  • 3 1/4 cup of Bread Flour (yellow bag usually)
  • 1/4 cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 3-4 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 1 teaspoon of Salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon of Rapid Rise Yeast (for bread machines)

Bread Machine Directions:

My bread machine has a quick dough option it takes about 45 minutes to knead and mix and warm and knead it again or something like that, I usually walk away :).  When it is done, I leave it in the bread machine for 15 more minutes and let it rise so that the yeast is more relaxed and easy to roll.

***Alternative: 1 frozen loaf of Rhodes bread, thawed and rolled out will do the same thing.  :)

Cinnamon Filling Directions:

In a bowl mix:

  • 1 cube softened butter
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon


Building the Cinnamon Rolls:

  1. Plop the dough on a lightly dusted counter and roll it out about 18-24 inches long and 10-12 high. Spread the sugar/butter/cinnamon mix on the dough and roll it up. It should still be 18-24 inches long.
  2. Then cut the dough into 1 1/2 to 2-inch rolls. I use a steak knife or dental floss. You should get approximately 12 rolls.
  3. Place them in a 9x13 greased pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 45-60 minutes until they double in size.
  4. Then bake them at 350 degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes. Watch them closely towards the 20 minutes, they start to brown fast.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1 cube of softened Butter
  • 1/2 cube of softened Cream Cheese (4 oz)
  • 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
  • About 1/2 pound of Powdered Sugar (added in gradually while mixing)

 

  1. Whip it until smooth and fluffy. It will lighten in color as you whip it.
  2. Apply a generous dollop of Cream Cheese Frosting on each warm Cinnamon Roll and enjoy! Straight out of the oven is our favorite. :)


*Tip: These Cinnamon Rolls are AMAZING with my Zesty Homemade Chili.
