Blog Carnival...Feb 09...How to cover a button! Old school!

When I was growing up, my grandmother had these buttons all over her house...in drawers and in her sewing basket!

All you need is a simple kit...you can get them at craft stores including Joanne's and even at Walmart!

The diagram below is exactly how it works!

Step One: Cut a piece of fabric down to about double the size of the button you are covering!
Step Two: Lay the fabric down on top of the white tool piece that came in your kit!
Step Three: Push the rounded top of the button into the fabric, into the tool!
Step Four: Tuck the fabric inside the rounded button part and then push the back piece into place!
Step Five: use the blue tool to secure the back of the button into place...be firm!
You have covered a button! Woot Woot! Happy Creating:)

I don't know why your blog wasn't included in the carnival. It was not in the list I received to post. I'll add you to the list.
