i need to make these, you don't understand my desire! I have been wanting to make these for so long, but being a visual learner and the directions on the back lacking much of well anything. i didn't think i would ever be able to make these.

You have made it look so easy! i have some pink pleather begging to be made into buttons! I have a new craft project for the weekend!

I'm having too much fun making buttons now!

Question if anyone might know?  I made one button and didn't get enough fabric down in the button before snapping the back part onto the button.  What's the easiest way to get a button back off and try again?

Wow, thanks so much for the tutorial, going to have to run out and try and find the supplies tomorow. I made a waistcoat last week and was having trouble finding appropriate buttons but now I can just make fabric ones...and think of all the other awsome things. I've been in love with fabric covered button hair clips for a while but they're so enpensive to buy...but it easy to make! Thank you!

Question where is the best place to buy supplies for the buttons and the little circle to make them. I have seen them at craft stores but didnt know if anyone seen them somewhere on line cheaper.
Thanks Jeni

Thank you for this great tutorial!  I always walk passed the button making supplied and they yell my name out.  Guess I'll be stopping next time.

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.
