Today I've been making some felt buttons.
(Updated) Some extra info, for those of you interested in making buttons for your own crafts!
The buttons are made with plain cover buttons which snap together, you can press them together by hand but using a tool makes it much easier. I use a universal cover button tool (pictured above) , you can use it for pressing different sized buttons together, and the packaging also helpfully came with templates drawn on it for the size of felt/fabric you need to cover each size of button.
The wool blend felt I sell is perfect for covering buttons, but remember only to use them for things you won't be washing! I don't sell button making supplies in my shops but your local haberdashery/sewing-supplies shop will probably stock some.
Here are lots of felt buttons I made a couple of years ago - be warned, making these is quite addictive!
The turquoise buttons I've made today are going to be used to make some felt flower brooches & hairbands, like these:
I love the lilac and turquoise colour combo, but if you fancy something a bit different you can now order custom versions of this design - in any colours you want!
