I Like Big Buttons! Fabric Cover Button Bracelet Tutorial October 06 2016

Today I am making a Fabric Cover Button Bracelet.  I have been eyeing these for a while.  I love the mix of metal and fabric.  Mix and match fabrics or go for a solid theme.  There are so many possibilities.  Layer more than one bracelet to make a statement.

Supplies:

  • 11 to 13 - Completed Size 20 Flat Back Fabric Cover Buttons
  • 1 Disk and Loop Bracelet (We have two sizes available 7.2" or 8.25")
  • 11 to 13 - 1/2" x 1/2" Felt squares
  • E6000 or comparable adhesive

Steps:

1.  Follow these instructions to make Flat Back Fabric Covered Buttons.

cover-button-bracelet-tutorial-pic-1

2. Lightly scuff the tops of the gluepads so the glue will adhere better (not essential but recommended).

3. Lightly scuff the back of the Cover Button so the glue will adhere better (not essential but recommended).

4. Clean both surfaces of dust.

5.  Apply E6000 to back of Cover Button.
