I have been finding so many amazing things from my surfing around the web lately that I am feeling completely inspired! Today, the baby was sleeping, the kids were playing outside in this beautiful day we were having and I was cleaning. I ran across a box of buttons from my friends wedding that I usually let Logan play with. But having seen this tutorial recently, I thought of something else to do with them: Button Bracelets.
I made Cyan’s in all her favorite colors; blue, white, and green. And for Logan:
I found a special Monster button and coordinated all his buttons around that. They have been wearing them all morning long. I think they were a hit!
So much so that 20 minutes later I had my own!
- Make sure you put each button on separately. That allows the elastic to stretch.
- Make the elastic circle first. It seems logical that since you are laying the buttons out that you would put them on while the elastic wasn’t sewn in a circle… but this way is harder. And it is also easier to cover the two attached edges with a button if that is the first button you put on.
