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.

Crafty Wednesday - Fall-Themed Key Fob Wristlet @ ILikeBigButtons.com November 04 2021

 

😍 Friend Request! I had a friend request some Fall-themed Key Fob Wristlets. I love how they turned out! 😍


ILikeBigButtons.com Supply List:

For more Crafty Inspiration, visit our Key Fob Hardware Inspiration Boards.


Key Fob Wristlet with KAM® Plastic Snaps Tutorial @ ILikeBigButtons.com October 18 2021

Thanks to my I Like Big Buttons! Facebook group for help deciding on which color KAM® snap to use on my latest project. I went with G90 - Bright Celery because I love the pop of color that it adds to the project.

I have been wanting to make a Key Fob Wristlet for a while with a KAM® Plastic Snap accent. Not only does the KAM® Plastic Snap add a bit of pizzazz to my project but it is also functional. I can wear the wristlet on my wrist or snap it to my purse strap for safekeeping. No more digging around in my purse to find my keys.

Supplies:

1. Cut a 12" x 5" section of Fabric of your choosing and 12" x 1" Fusible Fleece.

2. Fold and iron the Fabric in half with the wrong sides together.

3. Unfold and iron the Fabric in half again long sides to the center. Iron Fusible Fleece to the left or right center column of the fabric, depending on how you want to fold it.

4. Fold over and iron about 1/2" of the fabric in on each of the ends so that when you sew your way around the strip you will create a finished edge at each end.

5. Use your Sewing Clips to pin the Wristlet flat. It will look like this when you get done.

6. Stitch along the edge of your Fabric strip, I stitched 1/8" in.  Remove the Sewing Clips as you go.  Work slowly, keeping close to the edge and as straight of a line as possible.

7. Continue all the way around the band, stitching 1/8" from the edge.

8. Using the Awl, poke a hole through for the snap about 1/2" in from the edge. Do this at each end.

9. Install the KAM plastic snap cap and socket on one end and the other KAM plastic snap cap and stud at the other end. One will be facing up, and one will be facing down so that when they snap together they look like the above picture.

10. Snap KAM plastic snap together and decide where you want the snap on the wristlet. I decided I wanted it to be closer to the Key Fob Hardware than not. 

11. Make sure that the Fabric Wristlet is centered. 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.

12. I wanted to add an extra bit of embellishment to my Key Fob Wristlet, so I made a quick Cover Button Pendant. Follow these instructions to make Flat Back Fabric Covered Buttons.

13. Carefully apply E6000 to the inside edges of the Pendant Bezel.

14. Press the assembled Fabric Cover Button into place.

15. Let dry for the recommended time, add a necklace or cord as we did, and enjoy.
