Now, if you are one of those people you have been warned. I do love buttons!!
I don't have pictures of the process but basically I measured 1/2 elastic and sewed the ends. When I say sew you will quickly realize that means a needle and thread. (Side note, I do have a machine but we haven't quite fallen in love yet.) For future ones I would recommend 1/4 inch. It will get this job done and not limit how big your buttons have to be.
Then I just picked out buttons, choose a starting place and went for it. I tried to place them so that they 'layered' and didn't expose the elastic. When I had the elastic fully covered I came back with some smaller ones and but another button on top.
This is the first one I made:
After seeing it my college age daughter wanted one too so on Christmas Eve I finally got it done!
If anyone gives it a try I would love to see what you come up with!
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
