Make Your Own Buttons!

Is there anything more frustrating than finding the perfect vintage button for that project and only finding one when you need 10? Or a button on your favorite shrug breaks in the wash? Or you find an awesome button but want it in a different color? Well, I found a solution! As promised I have made a tutorial for using vintage buttons (or vintage-like buttons or charms etc) to make new buttons!

Molded pre-bake on left, original on right

The full tutorial can be found over on my blog!

Happy Crafting!

Hi! I'm a twenty something engineer working in Elko NV that loves to sew all sorts of things on my off time. For myself it varies between retro and steampunk/victorian. But i make a LOT of stuff for my sister who is always 50's. I also make soaps and perfumes that I sell in my etsy shop.
