I like crafty things. Even better, I like an excuse to buy crafty things. So the last time I was ordering from KAM Snaps, I noticed that they now have do-it-yourself fabric covered button kits and, oh hey, they randomly ended up in my shopping cart along with the snaps I actually needed. I immediately tried them out as soon as my daughter went to bed, and was shocked at how absolutely FAST you can make these—less than a minute per button, and you can use them in a million different ways. The equipment to make these is tiny, and your local fabric or craft store probably has button making kits as well.
- Fabric scraps—this is a great way to use up small scraps that are sitting around taking up space, not that I know this from experience or anything…
- Buttons and button making kit—you should have a round button front, a button back, a small, flexible plastic “bowl” and something similar to a plastic thimble in your kit.
- Scissors—for cutting things
