You can't get much simpler than this. With a great little button-making kit ($3.79 for five buttons) that you can find at any craft store, you can make lots of these beauties. Its a fabric covered button and a hair band - that's it. But, aren't the simplest things always the cutest?
The young girls in your life will love to do this with you. They can make these for many friends and family members as a sweet little Christmas or Hanukkah gift - and do it quickly! Or, how perfect for a stocking stuffer or advent gift! I've taken you through the how-to on the button making as I think having the photo tutorial makes things so much easier to follow - especially if you've never made a fabric covered button before. You can imagine that the possibilities are endless! The grey polka dots are the 3/4" size. The yellow ones are 7/8".
Allie loves dogs, so I though these were super cute.

Aluminum cover button kit
Fabric scraps (apprx 2x2" is enough for a 7/8" button)
Time: 10 minutes
Trim any excess fabric. You want enough to cover the entire button and stay put under the backing.
Tuck all the fabric in towards the center of the button.
I don't know what it is about them but I LOVE fabric covered buttons. Wouldn't these look cute on a gray cardigan? I digress . . . Get your pliers and the hair bands.
Pull it tightly.
Do the other one, and finis!
