Lovely Buttons everywhere! When it comes to crafts, we always look for something de novo and unique that will add shimmers in our handmade. I’ve found this covered buttons making kit at Daiso so I decided to bought it and give it a try. And since I am making a handmade bags that needs a lock button, and instead buying an already made buttons, why not making my own covered buttons that will definitely suitable match for my bags.
The kits includes button parts a & b, pusher, mold, template and the instructions as well. The size is 22mm and you can make a 15 pieces covered buttons. The buttons part a are the front and the b part will be the back of your button; the red circle one is the pusher; the transparent color is the mold and the template will be your pattern for cutting a fabric or remnant. Oh by the way, the button kits have different sizes available to buy but I choose this 22mm, and I guess these one are the medium button size among the others.
Once you started making a covered button, all you need to prepare are scissors and fabric (avoid thick fabric such as denim and corduroy, etc.).
Here’s the instruction for the covered buttons making kit: (also see the image below)
- Place a piece of a round cut cloth using the template, with part A button on the mold.
- Next, push it with your thumb or using the pusher
- Place part B button and firmly push it down with the pusher
- Lastly, push the back of the mold to release your button. And voila~! you already made your own covered button.
