Tutorial: How to Make a Fabric Covered Button



I've had a few readers lately asking how to make their own fabric covered buttons.  

So today I thought I'd share with you a little tutorial on how I make mine.

It's really quite simple!










See!  I told you it was easy!!!

You can find Button Covering Kits at your local fabric store or online via Ebay, Etsy, Craftumi & heaps of other lovely sewing related shops.


If you feel like hanging around... Later in the week I'll show you some different ways you can use your self covered buttons!  
I've recently added a "Follow by email" & "Subscribe" Dooby-Thingy to my sidebar, so now there's 2 more ways that you can stay up to date with Cass Can Sew!

Happy Buttoning!!!

  1. Wow! That's a really cool idea. I could use those to attach to hairpins or hair ties. I like to think I'm crafty but don't really have any skills to speak of. That's something I could do!
