Fabric or ribbon covered buttons

In these photos I have used navy and white spot fabric to cover a button. You can also use wide ribbons.

Step 1 - Cut a circle of fabric or ribbon (there is a template on the back to show you the size)

Step 2 - Place the front of the button on top of the mould (white plastic bit).

Step 3 - Place the front of the button on top.

Step 4 - The button is ready to push down.

Step 5 - Using the blue circle, push the silver piece into the mould.

Step 6 - Now push the back of the bottom into the mould.

Step 7 - Get the completed button out of the mould.

I looped a hair elastic through mine and I have a fun hair tie!
