You know how you can get a normal crappy button and cover it with fabric or something..so it ends up like the kind of button that you put on top of a hat?..I know I once knew how to do it, or at least read about how to do it, but now I can't remember!
I'm wanting to make a newboy cap, and I've got all my fabric cut out and everything (just waiting for the sewing machine to get fixed)..But I want the button to actually match the outer fabric!

they sell little packages of them with the notions at your fabric store. They are very inexpensive, easy to make and come in all different sizes.

Aww, cool! I don't have a Joanns down here, but hopefully Lincraft or Spotlight or something will have something! That's much easier than the make it yourself way!

You can also find them at any Walmart or other fabric shop.  I used to use them when making my girls clothes, except I would loop a ponytail holder band through the back where you would sew it on, and make them matching ponytail holders for all of their little sets.
