Here’s the perfect project for your fashionista tween. These button bobby pins are fast, easy and infinitely customizable. And bonus! They require no sewing! You need very (VERY) little fabric for this so instead of buying new, have your tween search through your scrap bag or even harvest some fabric from favorite worn-out clothing. You can also vary the style by changing the button size. Look for variety packs for button kits so they can create all kinds of styles and looks.
Here’s what you need:
Covered Button Kit
1. Cut circles of fabric about the size indicated on the back of the button package. Pay attention to what is centered on the fabric, this will be what’s on your button.
2. Center the circle of fabric on your button holder and press the button top in so that the fabric is pulled tight over the front.
3. Fold down the edges and place the button backing on top, pressing it into place with the presser piece.
