Flat Backs are used for crafts were you would like to glue a cover button: jewelry, bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces, bobby pins and barrettes, scrap booking, and much more.

Wire Backs are used for fabric cover buttons in sewing, shoes, clothing, pony tail holders and much, much more.

Here are the 7 sizes we carry. From 1/2", which is about as small as your pinky nail, all the way up to 1 7/8" in diameter, about the size of the round side of a kiwi fruit. We carry them in both flat back (glueable) and wire back (sewable).

Assembling fabric Cover Buttons is fast and simple. In just seconds, you will have a button ready for your latest craft project.

See our pictorial below:

How to Make Fabric Cover Buttons:

Cover Buttons are easy to assemble:

  1. Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank.
  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. Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.
  4. Press the cover button edges down into the tool.
  5. Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front. 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.
  6. Take the smaller piece of the assembly tool and with the open side down place it on the button back.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-title-pic

Instructions:

1.  Cut a 10" x 5" section of Fabric of your choosing and 10" x 2.5" Fusible Fleece.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-2

2.  Iron Fusible Fleece to the center of the fabric.  Fold and iron the Fabric in half with the wrong sides together.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-4

3.  Unfold and iron the Fabric in half again long sides to the center.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-5

4.  It will look like this when you get done.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-6

5.  Use your Sewing Clips to pin the Wristlet flat.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-7

6.  Stitch along the edge of your Fabric strip, I stitched 1/4" in.  Remove the Sewing Clips as you go.  Work slowly, keeping close to the edge and as straight of a line as possible.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-8

7.  Repeat 1/4" stitching along the opposing edge.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-9

8.  Fold the Fabric Wristlet Strip in half, right sides facing out and match up the ends.

9. Stitch the ends together with a zig zag stitch.  I went back and forth a few times to insure it held.

10.  Trim any loose threads.  Use Fray Check to seal the end of the exposed Fabric edge.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-10

11.  Tuck the sewn seam ends into the Key Fob Hardware, making sure that the Fabric Wristlet is centered.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-11

12.  Using Key Fob Hardware Pliers squeeze the Key Fob Hardware closed with gentle pressure.  Sometimes, I go back and forth from left to right added a little bit of pressure to each side until it eases together.  Our Key Fob Hardware Pliers make this easy to do.

13.  Note the adjustable screw set to the distance I want the pliers to go to.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-13

14.  Add the Split Ring and Yay!!!

Supplies for a Fabric Pacifier Clip with Button Style Pacifier Adapters:

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 18

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 1

Instructions:

1.  Choose a piece of Fabric, cut it to the dimensions: 14" x 3 1/2", the finished product once ironed, folded and sewn will be approximately 7/8" wide x 12" long.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 2

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 3

2.  Fold both 3 1/2" wide ends in 1/4" and iron flat.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 4

3.  Now fold and iron the fabric in half the long way (14" length).

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 5

4.  Then fold and iron again, bringing the outer edges to the middle "iron line" and iron along those edges. Repeat on other side.

5.  Re-iron the seam so that the Fabric is smooth and flat, it should now be 13 1/2" long x 7/8" wide.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 6

6.  Open the top of the Fabric strip and trim the excess internal fabric at an angle so that there is less chance of the ends peeking out when sewn together.  Repeat on the other end.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 7

7.  Pin the Fabric strip in a couple places to keep it in place.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 8

8.   Sew a 1/8" seam all the way around the piece making sure to back stitch at the start and finish to set the seam.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 9

9.  Now installed a Cap and Stud about 1/2" from the edge and the mating Cap and Socket about 1 1/2" later so that the center of the two KAM Snap parts are about 1 1/2" or more apart.  Any closer and I found I had trouble getting the MAM Ring or O-Ring Adapter to sit neatly inside.   I used Size 20 snaps for this tutorial but either Size 20 or Size 16 will work great.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 10

10.  Repeat on the other side, that will hold the Pacifier Clip.  I, then, feed the Pacifier Clip and MAM Ring Adapter onto the ribbon and snapped it into place.  It may have been easier to thread on the pacifier clip before installing any Snap parts but I was able to feed it through without much trouble.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 11

11.  Tada!  Now time to add the Pacifier.

12.  Simply stretch the MAM Ring or O-Ring around the Button Style Grip on the Pacifier and it will settle behind it and hold the Pacifier securely. Now snap the Pacifier in place, attach to your child's shirt and go.

Every time I do a load of jeans in the laundry, I inevitable find ANOTHER pair of jeans with the knees split from seam to seam and, really, how many jean shorts can a boy use :P.  They even wear though patches and re-enforced knees.  I have active boys :).  I have been trying to find creative ways to recycle holey jeans.  Today I am recycling a pair of holey jeans into a Pacifier Clip.

Don’t forget to enter our Super-Sized KAM Plastic Pacifier Clips and Snap Giveaway!!!  Just 7 days left:

Also, if you don’t want to wait, you can get 10% off our Pacifier Supplies on our website with Coupon Code: PACI2016

Supplies for a Recycled Jean Pacifier Clip with Fabric Rosette:

Instructions:

1.  Using an old, holey pair of Jeans cut two 1 1/2" x 14" strips of material.

2.  Use Sewing Clips to hold the material, wrong sides together, right sides facing out.

3.  Stitch around the strip of fabric about a 1/4 to 3/8" in all the way round making sure to back stitch at the start and end.

4.  Pull on the edges to fray the jean material up to the stitch you made.  I used a crafty child :) with a cutting board and a fork.  It will also fray over time but I was going for a this look.

5.  To make the Fabric Rosette, fold the fabric in half, wrong sides together, two times.  You will end up with about 1/2" or less strip of fabric 24" long.  I used an iron to fold it, not so much that it was completely flat, just enough that it held its shape.  Start at one end and hot glue the first bit of it back against itself.

6.  Continue this ever so often so that the 'bud' stays together.

7.  I made the bud or center of the rose about 1/2" in diameter.  Add one last drop of hot glue.

8.  Now twist the fabric 360 degrees, so that the bottom becomes the top.  Tack it with a small bead of hot glue and repeat.

9.  Continue twisting and gluing until you run out of fabric or until you reach the desired size of your rosette.

10.  It will look like this when you are finished.

11.  Glue the last bit of fabric on the underside of the Rosette securely with hot glue.

12.  For a more finished look, I added a circle of felt to the bottom with Fabri-Tac.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-16

13.  Put the KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip on the Fabric strip about 1″ in.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-17

14.  Fold back 1″ of the strip back onto itself.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-18

15.  Straight stitch across the fabric strip just behind the KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip.  Make sure to set the stitch.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-19

16.  Make sure that the internal snap in a comfortable distance to accommodate the width of the handle, I spaced my KAM Snaps about 2″ apart using the Pacifier I have with the biggest handle.

17.  Now on the side where the Pacifier will be attached, I installed a Cap and Socket about 1/2″ from the edge.  I used Size 20 snaps for this tutorial but either Size 20 or Size 16 will work great.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-20

18.  Add Fabric Rosette with Fabri-Tac to the Pacifier Clip just above the clip.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-21

19.  Now snap the Pacifier in place, attach to your child’s outfit and go.

20.  Tada!  Okay, I think I am in love.  Super cute!  Happy Snapping!!!  To see our other great Pacifier Clip Tutorial and KAM Plastic Snap Ideas and buy these supplies visit I Like Big Buttons.com.

Disclaimer:  Keep in mind that although I have rough tested these I in no way recommend you leave your baby alone with these as there are small pieces and if not done properly they may come apart and become a choking hazard.  I would recommend these clips under adult supervision only.  The maker and/or parent assumes full responsibility when using these pacifier clips.
