Wow, I never wanted to buy a kit cos I was so worried I'd screw up, but I don't really lose if I mess up on this haha. I had a look through your blog as well, you have some really cute stuff.

Your tutorial is very well presented. It's clear and easy to follow. Thank you for sharing. Personally, I've never been able to make those store bought kits work. This I can do.

I just had an idea.  Wink
The buttons with holes could be used. A person could make their own shank with wire. It would be just like making a wire loop for a charm or pair of earrings.

Thank you for this beautifully clear tute! You make it look so easy. One question, though, is how do you stop the fabric edge from fraying? Or is that not a problem?
