just occured to me - I hate buttonholes - use a snap or a magnetic closure - and then sew the button on top...
Off to pull some ties out of my crafty tie drawer

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

..yep, sure, you could use velcro, or hook and loop, or snaps, or whatever you want.  I didn't want to go the snaps route personally because you have to 'press down' on them to close, and pressing down metal onto glasses inside seemed kinda risky, whereas with the buttons there's nothing but soft cloth inside against your glasses.  But if you aren't using them for glasses then it doesn't matter!

if you can't sew a buttonhole you could also sew a ribbon or hair elastic loop to go around the button. This was an excellent tute and idea-thanks!

I also wanted to mention that this would , if sew shorter, make a cute change purse or a friggan awesome envelope to give someone a gift card in!

Yes!!  Good idea with the loop, retro-redux. 

I actually did end up making a couple as little change-purse type pouches for friends, and I made the skinny end of a tie into a holder for a really nice pair of chopsticks, as another gift.  The posibilities are endless.
