Button Cover Kit Tutorial
I always forget about buttons. I like buttons but they are inevitably the last thing I think about when doing a project. Granted, I don't make a lot of things that require buttons but when I do I usually just go for the least ugly option that I can find whether or not it really compliments what I am making.
But the other day I was wandering around the craft store and I found this intriguing button cover kit. Somewhere in the back of my brain I knew such things existed but now that it was right there in front of me I was slightly shocked to see it. It looked like a fun thing to do and since it was less than $5 I figured, why not?
When I got the kit home I realized that this tutorial would best be done in a video format. So I made this little 4 minute video to show you how the button cover kit works and hopefully inspire you to try it out for yourself.
It really is very easy to make your own buttons. Either embellish them as I did with this cute little needle point ( from the book Secret Garden embroidery, book review coming soon) or use a matching fabric, either way you can make something unique that perfectly fits your project.
And I would also like to encourage you to take some extra time in your local craft or fabric shop and really explore all the nooks and crannies. I randomly found this kit while looking for something else and I am sure you too could find something great if you give yourself the chance.
