This week’s very lucky winner is SueBeads! Congratulations! Please send your postal address to the ABS Suggestion Box to receive a Jangles Pendant from Jennifer at Jangles.
I love your buttons! I would like to know how to put buttons on my garments, but also be able to take them off easily. I want to wash my coats and sweaters without my art buttons attached so they won’t get damaged.
Ima Button Freak
Today is your lucky day! I have a quick solution! Keep reading…
Take your needle off of the ribbon and tie in a pretty bow.
Ta Da! You’re done.
Now when you wear your coat open you see a pretty ribbon tied in a bow. When you need to wash your garment, untie bow take off the button & ribbon and wash.
You can easily re-attach your art button again after cleaning.
It takes maybe 2 minutes, tops.
If you’re not into pretty bows try this.
Use 8″ of ribbon threaded onto your needle for each button. Start on the outside of your garment. Take the needle through one of the buttonholes and garment, then back up through the garment and other buttonhole. Tie in a knot.
For more dimension add a bead on top of the button using the same directions as above, then tie off using an overhand knot.
Show the world how beautiful you can be using art buttons and ribbon!
