I Like Big Buttons! - Fabric Cover Buttons - Easy To Make, Great Impact! October 09 2018

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.

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!

Christmas In July @ I Like Big Buttons! July 22 2018

It feels like Christmas in July in our I Like Big Buttons! household.

We have been busy helping our small community church prepare goodies for the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes that our church sends out each year. It is a great way to demonstrate to and with my children what it means to love and reach the unreached.

Given how excited my children, who have much in comparison, are about the little packages we put together, I can only imagine the wonder each girl and boy has when they open the special boxes we have packed for them.

This year we were tasked with making little bead & necklace kits which feels right up our alley. 

I think they turned out pretty nice and with my many helpers, the task wasn't overwhelming. So far, we have put together 225 bead necklace kits. I am sure some more beads will make their way to us. 

Next, we were put in charge of cutting in half all the construction paper so that it fits neatly in the shoeboxes. I may have volunteered for this task because I have the largest paper cutter around. :P

Our task for the upcoming week is sewing kits. I bought some simple hotel sewing kits off of Amazon that we are going to jazz up with some extra goodies.

Like an overabundance of "free" fabric, Grandma dropped on my doorstep when she was cleaning her home.  I think for my sanity and to bless someone else, it should be donated to Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. Seems like a win, win! :)

We are also adding extra thread, bobby pins, buttons, floss, ribbon left over from our bead necklaces, and scissors.

I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into Christmas in July at I Like Big Buttons! I am sure there will be more Operation Christmas Child projects to come as November approaches. My kiddos and I are on our OCC director's short list. She knows we are cheerful, ready, and willing to make her crazy ideas a reality. :)

Last year, our tiny community church made almost 800 boxes which amazes me. God is Good!!! If you haven't checked out Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan's Purse, you should. It is an outstanding program run by Franklin Graham.

Friday Fun Facts - The Anatomy Of A KAM Plastic Snap June 08 2018

KAM plastic snaps are wonderful. They are a SNAP to install and much easier and durable than a standard metal snap or sewable button.  They come in a multitude of colors and sizes.  Which one is right for you?

Here is a simple tutorial on the anatomy of a plastic snap set. There are 4 parts to a set:

  • 2 Caps (Before installation they resemble a tack with a Round, Heart, or Star shaped head. They give a neat finished look to your snap.)
  • 1 Socket (The female part with the larger raised circle that the stud (male part) fits into)
  • 1 Stud (The male part with the smaller raised circle that fits inside the socket (female part))

SIZE 20:

  • Size 20 (0.5" - 12.4 mm) snaps can be used for most general projects like baby diapers and clothing. They are our most popular plastic snap size, have the largest color variety, and have a good strong hold. We carry them in all 130 colors and clear.
  • Standard Size 20 snaps have a 5.6mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • We also offer Long Prong Size 20 (0.5" - 12.4 mm) in a rainbow of colors. They are great for embroidered key fobs using Marine or Glitter Vinyl as well as other projects where you need just a little more prong length. Long Prong Size 20 snaps have a 6.2mm prong length.

 SIZE 16:

  • Size 16 (0.4" - 10.2 mm) snaps are most commonly used for baby and toddler clothing, pacifier clips, mama pads, and small crafts. We carry them in our first 60 ("B") colors and clear.
  • Size 16 snaps have a 4.2mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • The Size 16 Socket and Stud are less noticeably different. Many first time users don't immediately see the distinction. The Socket's raised circle is the larger of the two pictured, and the Stud's raised circle is smaller and inserts into the Socket (female) side.

SIZE 14:

  • Our Size 14 (0.35" - 9.7 mm) snaps can be used in most applications where Size 16 snaps are used. We carry them in White and Black at this time.
  • Our Size 14 snaps have a 5.0mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • As with the Size 16, the Size 14 Socket and Stud are less noticeably different. The Socket's circle is the larger of the two pictured.  The Stud's circle is smaller and inserts into the Socket (female) side. Size 16 and Size 14 Sockets and Studs are the same; only the cap differs.

SIZE 19:

  • Size 19 (0.475" - 12 mm) snaps are used for heavy duty applications requiring a strong grip. They are often used with tote bags, coats, tarps, and upholstery. We carry them in White and Black at this time.
  • Size 19 snaps have a 6.9mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • The Size 19 Socket and Studs are larger, but similar in appearance to Size 20 Sockets and Studs.

SIZE 22:

  • Size 22 (0.55" - 14.1 mm) snaps are used for heavy duty applications requiring a strong grip. They are often used with tote bags, coats, tarps, and upholstery. We carry them in White and Black at this time.
  • Size 22 snaps have a 6.9mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • The Size 22 Socket and Studs are larger, but similar in appearance to Size 20 Sockets and Studs.

** This Press is a factory second while it has some cosmetic imperfections, it is brand new and functions properly. While KAM Snap presses are available in pretty colors for the home, they are industrial equipment.  Presses will have scratches, chipped/flaked paint, nicks, dust, rust, and other cosmetic imperfections that will not hinder their function.  Presses and dies arrive pre-oiled and should be wiped down before first use.  Remove any remaining oil on each die by attaching several snaps to scrap fabric.
