Today is the 9th anniversary of the day T and I were married!
We're not doing anything too wild today because I fly out for Orlando tomorrow, but I asked Laurel from Ducks in a Row to share a fun project with you all. I enjoy stopping by Laurel's blog for glimpses of her lovely homelife, thoughts on homemaking, and fun activities.
Hope you'll leave her some comment love here for this fabulous project, and please be sure to stop by her blog as well! Take it away, Laurel....
OK - with your pliers, grab the shank and remove it. (ooh, blurry picture, quick let's move on!)
Next, cut a couple of inches of your craft wire.
and bend it in half.
Slide this wire through the bottom of the clip, and through the bottom of the button (Be careful when you remove the metal shank that you notice what side it was on. You want that side facing the clip).
Twist the wire, trim it, and smash it down so it as flat as you can get it.
Grab your fabric scrap and the button cover kit. I only use the white plastic part.
Lay your fabric, right side down in the white thing (I'm sure it has a name, but I will call it the white thing) and put the top of the button over it. I make sure I line it up so I get part of the fabric that I like. I've done this before and ended up covering the button in the empty spaces instead of the pattern - whoops.
Trim the fabric. If you have too much fabric, it's hard to push the back on. If you have too little, the edges pop out. There is a pattern on the back of the button package.
Thank you, Laurel! I can't wait to make some of these for my girlies. Y'all stop back in tomorrow for an awesome Giveaway from The Shabby Chic Cottage.
Have a lovely day!
