"No Sew" Pacifier Clip with KAM Snaps and Enamel Clip by ILikeBigButtons.com November 03 2020

 

Supplies for a "No Sew" Pacifier Clip:

Instructions:

  1. Choose a 7/8" or 3/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, cut a 14" to 16" length of ribbon.  I did 7/8" Grosgrain Ribbon and I cut it 16" long so when it was completed it was approximately 12" long.
  2. The ribbon I was using was made of polyester so I used a lighter to seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn't fray.  (If you are unsure, you may want to practice on a scrap piece if this is your first time or you are unsure of what the material is made of.)
  3. Then I used a bit of Fabric Tac and folded over 1" of the ribbon back on itself to reinforce the ribbon and pressed it firmly and let it dry.  Repeat on the opposite end.
  4. Once dry, I installed a Cap and Socket in each end of the ribbon about 1/2" from the edge.  I used Size 20 snaps for this tutorial but either Size 20 or Size 16 will work great.
  5. On the side that will hold the Enamel Clip, I simply folded the ribbon over at the 1" mark and installed a Cap and Stud where it would meet.  I, then, feed the Enamel Clip 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.
  6. Now on the side where the Pacifier will be attached, adjust the internal snap at a comfortable distance to accommodate the width of the handle.  I went an additional 1/2" for the Pacifier, I used.
  7. Now snap the Pacifier in place, attach to your child's shirt and go.
  8. Tada!  Happy Snapping!!!

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

  4. It will look like this when you get done.
  5. Use your Sewing Clips to pin the Wristlet flat.
  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.
  7. Repeat 1/4" stitching along the opposing edge.

  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.

Face Mask with Scrunchy Earpieces Using KAM Plastic Snaps Tutorial by ILikeBigButton.com April 23 2020

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

As a precaution, I have been making our family some face masks. Nothing fancy, I was limited to what supplies I had on hand. I made a mask with Elastic earlier, this one will be with ribbon ties.

So with some fabric scraps, ribbon (they mentioned you could use shoelaces as an option), sewing clips, and my trusting sewing machine, I found a set of instructions and struck out.

Here is the #1 version and #2 version I made:

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/blogs/news/face-mask-with-ribbon-using-sewing-clips-tutorial-by-ilikebigbutton-com

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

Supplies:

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

1. Cut out 2x 9.5" x 6.5" fabric rectangles and 2x 2" x 12" fabric rectangles.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

2. Iron the 2"x12" in half making a 1"x 12" fabric strip with right side facing in. Make 2.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

3. Sew 1/4" seam along the long side (12" long seam) and turn then the tube right side out. Iron smooth.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

4. Fish a 7" piece of elastic through the tube, I used a sewing clip to keep the back end of the elastic from getting lost in the tube. Pin the elastic level with the end of the tube. It should start to scrunch up some. The tube is 12" long and the elastic is 7" long.  Tuck the fabric into the tube without losing the elastic (use a second pin to keep in place) and sew the finished end of the earpiece that will be exposed. Make 2.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

5. With the right side of 9.5" x 6.5" fabric facing up, pin the 2 fabric and elastic earpieces to the bottom corners. Like so.

6. Pin the second piece of 9.5" x 6.5" fabric facing down to the fabric with the earpieces tucked safely inside. Make sure the earpieces don't get caught in the edges while sewing.

7. Sew a 1/4" seam starting about 1/2 way on the long side. Go all the way around the perimeter, stopping when you have about 1.5" to 2" left. Make sure to go back and forth at each of the corners to anchor the ribbon. Leave that gap so that you can turn the face mask right side out.

8. Turn the mask right side out and iron it flat.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

9. Make three pleats lengthwise, like you are folding a paper fan. I eyed it and used the sewing clip width as my pleat measurer, but if I was making more than a handful of these, I would make myself a template to make this part easier. The pleats help the mask form around the wearer’s face. Secure each pre-sewn pleat with a sewing clip as pictured above.

10. Now sew a 1/4"  stitch around the outer perimeter of the mask face, going back and forward over the corners to add more stability to the ribbon.

11. Then, top stitch a second time around the outer edge about 1/4" in from the first round of stitching.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

12. Using your KAM Plastic Snap Pliers and KAM Plastic Snaps add a snap to the upper edge of the mask and the end of the loose earpiece.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

13. Tada! You have a finished face mask. This was my husband's favorite because the elastic didn't rub and pull at his ears. I added a second KAM Plastic Snap in pink to each side to make the mask work better with my face.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/kam-snap-sets

*Afterthoughts, this mask was the perfect size for my husband, but I added another KAM Plastic Snap an inch in for me on the scrunchy earpiece. This also worked for my teens, but I will need to adjust for my smaller kiddos. This mask seems best sized for teens to adults.


Face Mask with Ribbon Using Sewing Clips Tutorial by ILikeBigButton.com April 13 2020

Here is the first version I made:

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

Supplies:

  • Face Mask Instructions (I used these as general guidelines)
  • 2x 9.5" x 6.5" pieces of Fabric
  • 4x 18" of Ribbon or brand new Shoelaces (this is a good average size, but may need to be adjusted if you are a smaller person)
  • Sewing Clips
  • Sewing Machine

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

1. Cut out 2x 9.5" x 6.5" fabric rectangles.

2. With right side of 9.5" x 6.5" fabric facing up, pin a piece of 18" ribbon in each corner. Like so.

3. Pin the second piece of 9.5" x 6.5" fabric facing down to the fabric with the ribbon pinned to it. Make sure the tails of the ribbon don't get caught in the edges while sewing. I tied the ribbon into loose loops to keep them from finding their way into the edge seam.

4. Sew a 1/4" seam starting about 1/2 way on the long side. Go all the way around the perimeter, stopping when you have about 1.5" to 2" left. Make sure to go back and forth at each of the corners to anchor the ribbon. Leave that gap so that you can turn the face mask right side out.

5. Turn the mask right side out and iron it flat.

9. Tada! You have a finished face mask.

*Afterthoughts, my kiddos will need smaller masks, this one seems best sized for teens to adults.


Face Mask with Elastic Using Sewing Clips Tutorial by ILikeBigButton.com April 08 2020

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

We have been home now for close to a month, only leaving our home when we need supplies. What a change to our lives this last month has been. I am now a full-time teacher/chef/working mom. My sweet husband, who just started working from home because our kiddos were all in school, is now experiencing daily band concerts, 6 feet from his office, and the whirling dervishes that are our active kiddos being on top of us all day every day.

More than ever we have to watch what we touch, who we come into contact with, and when we have to go out, we have to protect ourselves from unknowing coming into contact with germs. It is a lot to take in.

As a precaution, I decided to make our family some face masks. Nothing fancy, I was limited to what supplies I had on hand. You will be surprised to know that I have a limited supply of fabric. A few years ago, I had so much fabric I didn't know what to do with it all, but I have finally whittled did down to scraps while making baby blankets for the babies who have joined our extended family and friends and gifting it to church projects to bless others.

So with some fabric scraps, headband elastic (it's all I had), sewing clips, and my trusting sewing machine, I found a set of instructions and struck out.

Here is the first version I made:

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

Supplies:

  • Face Mask Instructions (I used these as general guidelines)
  • 2x 9.5" x 6.5" pieces of Fabric
  • 2x 7" of Elastic (this is a good average size, but may need to be adjusted if you are a smaller person)
  • Sewing Clips
  • Sewing Machine

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

1. Cut out 2x 9.5" x 6.5" fabric rectangles.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

2. With right side of 9.5" x 6.5" fabric facing up, pin a piece of 7" elastic from left bottom looped to left top. Pin a piece of 7" elastic from right bottom looped to right top. Like so.

3. Pin the second piece of 9.5" x 6.5" fabric facing down to the fabric with the elastic pinned to it.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

4. Sew a 1/4" seam starting about 1/2 way on the long side. Go all the way around the perimeter, stopping when you have about 1.5" to 2" left. Make sure to go back and forth at each of the corners to anchor the elastic. Leave that gap so that you can turn the face mask right side out.

5. Turn the mask right side out and iron it flat.

6. Make three pleats lengthwise, like you are folding a paper fan. I eyed it and used the sewing clip width as my pleat measurer, but if I was making more of these, I would make myself a template to make this part easier. The pleats help the mask form around the wearer’s face. Secure each pre-sewn pleat with a sewing clip as pictured above.

7. Now sew a 1/4"  stitch around the outer perimeter of the mask face, going back and forward over the corners to add more stability to the elastic.

8. Then, top stitch a second time around the outer edge about 1/4" in from the first round of stitching.

https://ilikebigbuttons.com/collections/sewing-notions

9. Tada! You have a finished face mask.

*Afterthoughts, this mask was the perfect size for my husband, but I would probably make the elastic a 1/2" to 1" shorter for women. I will have to play with it to see what size works best for me. And of course, my kiddos will need smaller masks, this one seems best sized for teens to adults.

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!

How to make a Ribbon and Cotton Webbing Key Fob Hardware Wristlet by ILikeBigButtons.com March 18 2019

 
Instructions for 1.25" Key Fob Hardware (adjust accordingly if using 1" Hardware)
 

Supplies:

1.  Cut a 10" section of Cotton Webbing and Ribbon of your choosing.

2.  Iron Heat N Bond (10" by thinner than ribbon) to Cotton Webbing making sure to center it, this is not a necessary step but it makes it easier to sew the Ribbon on especially with embroidered ribbon.

 

3.  Iron the Ribbon to the Cotton Webbing.

 

4.  Now sew up one side of the Ribbon and down the other.  The Ribbon is attached securely to the Cotton Webbing now.  Trim the edges so that they are even.

5.  Fold the Cotton Webbing in half, right sides facing out and match up the ends.  Stitch the ends together with a 1/4" seam allowance.  Trim any loose threads.

 

6.  Tuck the sewn seam ends into the Key Fob Hardware, making sure that the Cotton Webbing is in there evenly and not hanging out one end or the other.

7.  Using your Pliers wrapped in duct tape or a scrap of fabric to protect the metal from getting scratched, squeeze the Key Fob Hardware closed a little at a time.  I like to go back and forth a couple of times so that I don't over crimp one side too much.

8.  Add the Key Ring and Yay!!! You are done.  Good Job!!!

How To Make A KAM Plastic Snap Cord Keeper/Organizer by ILikeBigButtons.com February 05 2019

Cords, cords, cords!!! Despite my husband's best efforts to make our house wireless, there are cords everywhere. Part of the joy of being a mom of many, I suppose. 😜 Everyone has one or more somethings that need to be charged and my husband makes sure there are enough cords so that no one is left crying. Have I mentioned he is my resident computer wiz? A job he proudly takes on.

So with cords abounding in my life and house, I decided we needed a better way to manage them all. Here are the results of my efforts. Cord keepers/organizers to simplify my life and corral the cords we can't live without. 🤪

Supplies:

Instructions:

1. Cut out your material of choice, I used Marine Vinyl I had left over from a summer project. I cut each piece approximately 5.25" x 2" and gave them two different styles of finished ends. One is a pointed end, I used my quilting square to accomplish this, and the other has a rounded end, I used a small drinking cup to create the rounded tip. *The cords I was making these for were 6' cords, you may need to adjust the length of your cord keeper to accommodate a larger or smaller cord.

2. Place the two pieces of Marine Vinyl with wrong sides together and pin with Sewing Clips, if desired. Straight stitch with a 1/4" seam around the whole piece using a back stitch at the beginning and end to set the stitch. 

3. Trim the edges down to 1/8" to remove the excess vinyl and any uneven edges. The Marine Vinyl can slip a little bit when you are sewing and I found this was the easiest way to get a clean edge.

4. Measure to the center at the top and bottom of each cord keeper/organizer and place a mark where you want your KAM Plastic Snap to sit. I don't like to eye it as I often find them off-center when I wing it.

5. Poke a hole through the centered mark with your KAM Awl and insert the KAM Plastic Snap Cap prong through the hole. You will want the cap on the top side (the side that was up when sewing) of your cord keeper and the socket or stud on the bottom side.

6. Flip the cord keeper over and add the socket.  Install the KAM Plastic Snap Cap and Socket on the edge that is rounded or pointed and a Cap and Stud on the square edge as pictured below.

7. Remember to install the snaps so that one half (Cap and Stud) are face up and one (Cap and Socket) are face down so that when you fold the cord keeper around the cord, the socket and stud meet.

8. Tada! These cord keepers/organizers take only minutes to make with scraps of vinyl/fabric, a few KAM Plastic Snaps, and are already making my life feel less crazy. At least until they all get home from school. 😜

How To Wrap Cover Buttons With Paper by ILikeBigButtons.com January 31 2019

1. Cut your paper scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank. We used book pages, children's books, and scrapbook paper and they all worked great. You may need to experiment and find what works best for you.

2. Cut a square of wax paper or piece of parchment paper slightly larger than your paper circle. You should be able to reuse it a number of times. I found that the parchment paper held up best.

3. Mist your paper circle on both sides and blot dry. This will help the paper to mold more smoothly to the rounded surface of the cover button front.

4. Layer the wax/parchment paper, then your paper circle on the larger assembly tool mold piece (RIGHT SIDE DOWN). When you look into the underside of the tool you want to see the back of the fabric.

5. Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the paper and press into the mold. This will require firm pressure. Leave the paper edges hanging out.

6. Press the paper edges down into the backside of the button front.

7. Place the back cover button piece on top of your paper 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.

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

9. Press down firmly. 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.

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

11. Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece carefully using the wax/parchment paper to ease the button free.

12. If desired, you can clear coat the completed button with Modge Podge or some equivalent sealer. It will extend the life of the Paper Wrapped Cover Button and give it a glossy finish.

Key Fob Lip Balm Holder by ILikeBigButtons.com December 10 2018

I have been admiring these Lip Balm Holders for some time and decided to today to make a few for my littles' Lip Balm and my Blistex. I love how they turned out!

Supplies:

1.  Cut a 15.5" x 2.25" piece of Cotton Fabric and Fusible Interfacing. These measurements will work for standard Lip Balm Tube and the standard Blistex Tube. You may need to adjust measures for your favorite lip product.

2.  Iron the Fusible Interfacing to the wrong side of your fabric.

3.  Fold right sides together width-wise and sew both long sides with a 1/4" seam. Do not sew short sides.

4.  Turn tube right side out through the open side, iron flat, and sew the open short side closed with a zig-zag stitch.

5.  Fold zig-zag side back on itself 1 1/4". Sew straight stitch 1/2" from the top, and again at 5/8" from the top. This is what it will look like from the back.

6.  Here is how the front turned out. This will be the front of the pocket on the Lip Balm Holder.

7.  Fold the tab that will be the front of the pocket at 2 3/4". Make sure the zig-zag stitch is hidden. Use Sewing Clips to hold front pocket in place while sewing. Stitch at 1/4" seam around the whole holder. And again at 1/8". Start and finish at the top edge so that your start and finish stitches will be hidden.

8.  Center the 1.25" Key Fob Hardware on the top edge of the Lip Balm Holder.

9.  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. Make sure the teeth in the Key Fob Hardware are sunk securely into the fabric.

10.  Tada! These little Lip Balm Holders were easy to make and are great as a quick thoughtful gift for a loved one who hates chapped lips. 

11.  Hang them on your keychain, the outside of your purse, or anywhere you need for quick access.

KAM Snap Upcycled Jean Christmas Ornaments by ILikeBigButtons.com December 05 2018

Today I decided a need a few Upcycled Jean Christmas Trees. As I have mentioned in the past, finding jeans destine for the scrap pile is no problem with a house full of rambunctious kiddos. These cute trees also remind me of some that my parents had when we were growing up.

Supplies:

  • A set of holey Jeans
  • Star KAM Snaps
  • KAM Snap Pliers and Awl
  • Fabric of your choice (I picked Christmasy colored cotton fabric)
  • Ribbon
  • Quilt Batting or Pillow Stuffing
  • Fabric Adhesive
  • Standard Sewing Machine
  • Scissors

1.  Make a simple Christmas Tree template and trace on your jean fabric with a permanent marker.

2.  Make pairs of each tree so that you have a front and back for each tree. You could also use felt or fabric on the back to extend the impact of your jean fabric.

3.  Cut the Christmas Tree template down. I took about a 1/2" on each side/angle. Make a Fabric Christmas Tree silhouette for each Jean Christmas Tree.

4.  Use a Fabric Adhesive to adhere the Christmas Tree silhouettes to the fronts sides of the Jean Christmas Trees.

5.  Use a decorative stitch to outline the Upcycled Jean Christmas Trees on two sides. Then fill with quilt batting or pillow filling.

6.  Finish stitching along the bottom swoop of the Christmas Tree. Add a loop of decorative ribbon and a Star KAM Plastic Snap to the top of the Christmas Tree.

Additional Crafty Ideas:

  • You could add multiple cuts along the edges of the trees to add more character.
  • Or you could fray the edges of the trees.
  • You could give the trees finished edges, but that wasn't the look I was personally going for.
  • You could add KAM Snaps; both Star, Heart, and Round shaped into the body of the tree to represent ornaments or twinkling lights.

7.  Tada! I think they turned out great and add a great pop of color to our Christmas Tree.


I Like Big Buttons! Upcycled Messenger Bag/Purse Tutorial November 09 2018

We are a cat loving family here at I Like Big Buttons. As such, we have a few fluffy friends scurrying around. Recently, my husband picked up a few bags of cat food that not only were made of a more durable material than the paper bags ones but also had cute kitty images on them. I couldn't resist turning them into some cute messenger bags for a couple of my little cat lovers. :)

How to make an Upcycled/Recycled Messenger Bag/Purse with KAM Snaps and Pet Food Bag

Supplies:

  • Pet Food Bag of your choice (Look for the ones made of woven plastic)
  • Marine Vinyl or a material of your choice
  • 2 KAM Snap Sets (Depending on the thickness of the material you may want Long Prong)
  • KAM Snap Pliers and Awl
  • 1″ Cotton Webbing
  • Scissors/Rotary Blade
  • Standard Sewing Machine

1.  Cut the bag along the seams. I plan on making 2 bags with it. For this project, I am focusing on making each bag with a kitty image front and center. Use a damp cloth to wipe the leftover cat food crumbs from the interior of the bags and let air dry. This doesn't take more than a few minutes.

2.  Decide on your shape. I like to craft off the cuff. This lid of a storage container was just the right size and shape to showcase the kitty image. Trace around it with a marker.

3.  I picked the height based on the image. I left a 1" above each kitty image. *If I did it again, I might do 2" or 3" instead. As you will see later, the flap of the bag covers some of the image. If I had dropped it another inch I think it would have looked slightly better when snapped closed.

4.  Cut 2 pieces of Marine Vinyl or material of your choice the same size at the kitty images. I had some vinyl left over from a summer chair reupholstering product. I love it because the color goes nicely with the kitty image and it is durable.

5.  Cut two flaps for the messenger bags. I cut them the same width as the bags and longer than I thought I would need so I could adjust on the fly.

6. Using a 1/2" seam sew the kitty image to the front piece of Marine Vinyl, right sides together. I chose to put the Marine Vinyl front to the front so that the interior of the bag was uniform, but you could turn the right side of the Marine Vinyl inward so that it was to the inside of the bag. Sewer's choice. :)

7.  Fold the sewed seam flat and smooth. Then, fold it until the kitty image is right side out. Smooth the sewed seam and Marine Vinyl.

8.  Sew 1/4" seam along the top of the finished edge.

9.  Fold the top edge of the back piece of the bag over a 1/2". Sew 1/4" seam along the edge, creating a finished edge.

10.  For the top flap, I created a simple square with three finished edges. Marine Vinyl is durable and the raw edges hold up nicely. If using another material, you will have to give consideration to the material you are using and adjust accordingly. The messenger bag/purse will be about 8" wide when finished so I made the flaps slightly smaller at 7.75".  *If I did it again, I might have shaved off a little bit more to give the shoulder strap more room to fill.

11.  I, then, cut the height of the flap down to 3" because I wanted to see as much of the kitty image as I could after the KAM plastic snap was installed.

12.  Align and use a zigzag stitch to attach the flap to the back piece of the purse. Make sure to center it.

13.  Put right sides together and sew the 2 sides and bottom of the purse with a 3/8" to 1/2" seam. Make sure to use a Stay Stitch the beginning and end of your sewing so that the stitches stay put.

14.  Turn the bags right side out and square the corners as much as possible. I used the backside of a Sharpie marker to help square the corners. Remember I slightly rounded them so they won't be perfectly square. Smooth bags flat.

15.  Measure the center of the flap and use a KAM awl to poke a hole for the KAM plastic snap that you will adding. I am only going through 1 layer of Marine Vinyl so a Standard Prong snap will work. If you are using thicker material or multiple layers, I would recommend our Long Prong KAM plastic snaps.

16.  Install KAM plastic snap (Cap and Socket).

17.  Repeat in front of the bag, where KAM plastic snap lines up. I poked the hole through both layers at once so that I had a point of reference. Then I widened the hole after double-checking the placement of the internal hole. Install KAM plastic snap (Cap and Stud).

18.  I think they turned out super cute! Now to add shoulder straps.

19.  For the sake of time and my sanity, I simply attached the shoulder straps with a half of a KAM snap set (Cap and Socket). I used the snap like a rivet. I also used Long Prong KAM plastic snaps for this piece because I was working with the thickness of the Marine Vinyl and Cotton Webbing. *I doubled the edge of the Cotton Webbing over on itself and sewed a straight line back and forth across it a half dozen times so it doesn't unravel.  With Polyester Webbing, you could melt the edge to secure it.

20.  Tada!!! I think they turned out great, it took less than 2 hours to make both of them, and my little cat lovers are ecstatic. They have a new place to store their treasures.

cover-buttons-slide-show-pic_with-words_1

These aren't your grandma's Cover Buttons!!! Well, actually they are ;) only better, with so many many great uses for them.

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

Wire Backs are used for fabric cover buttons in sewing, shoes, clothing, ponytail 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.
