they look lovely!  Smiley  two questions:
are the fabric ones covered with the plastic sheet?  or can you touch the fabric?  and what is the diameter?

thank you  Smiley there is no plastic sheet on them, so you can touch the fabric. they are 1 1/4 inches

coolio!  how does the fabric stay in there?  do you have to cut it slightly larger than usual to make it stay between the layers?  i'd always rather assumed that the plastic was a necessary part of the process...but i only make the nerdy big-sized buttons, so maybe the smaller ones have something else going on.

Haha.. I work in a JoAnn's fabric shop, so I recognize that peppermint candy fabric! (I have 2 yards of it just waiting to become a skirt...)

I love your buttons whole bunches!

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness,
starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the
negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix, angelheaded
hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the
starry dynamo in the machinery of night

here it is!
heres all the stuff youll need.
again, make sure gold pieces is inside blue!!! put fabric around button top (with picture centered).
push button (with fabric) through bottom of blue thing until it "clicks" under the gold piece.

cut excess fabric, but make sure you leave enough all the way around that it will go under the other piece of the button. 1/4 inch is probably enough.
make sure all fabric is under botton piece.
put red and green pieces where they would normally go.
press
and your done!

any questions?
