Sometimes, we can not find the right buttons to finish our proyect. Sometimes the color does not match, the style is not just right, or.....may be the price is too high. Well, we can make beautifull hand made buttons, recycling old plastic, wood or metal ones like they used to be done in the old days and now are so difficult to find and.....of course.....so expensive, because they are excluve and unique. Here I am sharing with you a technique that has helped me out a lot, and this is just the beginning.....you can experiment and make your own designs to sew them in the lovely garments you are so proud to produce. I really hope you enjoy making them!!!!
1. Old flat buttons.
2. Thick thread in cotton, silk, wool, or even thin silk ribbon will do.
3. Big needle.
4. Small straw, or coffe stirrer, or metal nail....any round gadget.
5. Small metal file.
