So I popped in to Abakhan last week and decided that I wanted to have a go at making fabric buttons.  “Oh its so easy” the lady said.  Yes right.

“All you do is wrap the fabric around the metal button ( if only it was that easy, having wrestled with the fabric for quite some time, I went for the forceful approach) and then you put the clasp on.  You dont need a gadget as they are self fastening.”

Unless you have a grip like one of the olympic arm wrestlers then there is no way you can get the button to clip on.  I decided to admit defeat and go and buy the gadget.  The gadget is a piece of rubber that you balance the button in and then bang really hard with on the top.  This I can do very easily given the level of frustration already incurred.

Here are some photos of my end products.  I decided to decorate one of them with the czech glass flower beads, they are so dainty I love them.  I will pop some photos on tomorrow night of my beaded buttons that I have also had a go at doing.

 

 

Notice the way the flowers stand up from the button, I think this is probably what caused the problems with my new button making kit.  I think if you had the time to spare you could make some lovely buttons to give as gifts but I think I may have to start now if I am going to give them as christmas gifts.

See you soon
