I didn't even know you could buy button-covering kits!

Well, now it looks like that I needn't have ever known, thanks to your awesome tutorial Cheesy  I'm going to go button-covering crazy now, you just watch.

Smashing in the face of a pinata that resembles Summer Wheatley is a disgrace to you, me, and the entire Gem State.

This tutorial is great. I've always wanted covered buttons but never had the courage to go and buy one of those kits. Now I can have prettier bags and clothes Smiley
It's so simple, now I feel stupid to not have thought about this befor  Lips sealed

Another reason this tute ROCKS is that sometimes the shank buttons in the kits (in Australia()are the fugliest colors instead of siliver and don't match the shirt.

I can't tell you how appreciative I am of this tute.

Hooray for the kindness of strangers....................

Villiku I think your tutorial is awesome. I posted a link to it from a Flickr group I'm in as well as a link from my craftblog.

So, using your directions I made something new. Smiley



I used the non-shank styled buttons and added magnets to the back. Embroidered fabric covered button magnets! Say that three times.

That's a great tut! I make yo-yo's all the time but never thought to put one over a button.
