No photos today, but we did do a little shopping at the craft stores in town! I picked up some cloth button forms and a pack of coordinating quilter’s fabric (half price!) to make these cute fabric-covered thumbtacks. I found the tutorial from How About Orange via Design Sponge. I love projects like this because they’re relatively inexpensive, simple, quick, and the results speak for themselves! If, unlike me, you’re sitting on bags of scrap fabric, this would be a fun way to use it up. And I have plenty left over to collage or make more buttons. I think next time I’m going to put magnets on the back.
Cuteness! I saw the same tutorial and thought, do I really need to start another project? Yeah, I might!
If it’s any consolation, Cicada, these took me an hour to make, tops. And you could easily break it into 15-minute pieces, and I am not crafty-inclined, so I work slow! 😉
She always has great tutorial posts…
Oh how cute! Sadly, I usually manage to stuff up any fabric related crafty project I attempt. BUT, maybe this is something even I could grasp. Maybe… 😉
Hi, love the buttons, they look like great fun to do, you got some great material too.
What a clever idea..I like the idea of magnets too.
lovely….I think I want to try my hand at these some day….maybe to make rings.
I have that tutorial on my long to do list! Your tacks look beautiful.
I have a bunch of fat quarters from back before I got tendonitis. I’m SOOO making some of these…probably after I move! Thanks for the awesome idea lady!
they would make great magnets.
