I really enjoyed making ScrapFabric So I decided to make more and this time to make some black and grey fabric buttons.
I chose the fabrics from the grey fabric "paintbox"
And added some more black to the mix
Tossed it around in a bowl so that the darker pieces were randomly mixed in
Stitched the pieces to create a piece of black grey ScrapFabric, which I then cut into squares
I ended up with 9 squares
I needed to make holes so that they can be used as buttons. I finally found my hole puncher but it didn't do the trick so I had to find another solution - a hammer and a large nail or 2.
A wooden slat to hammer into
Positioning the nail and pressing it a bit to mark the place for the hole.
Pressing it in and then hammering it down into the wooden slat through the fabric.
I leave the first nail in so that I get an idea where to position the second one.
Hammer that in as well
Pull them out of the wooden slat and push them through the holes that I made
A ScrapFabric button.
