Fabric Covered Button ~ Photo Tutorial

I'm slightly addicted to fabric covered buttons ... they make the perfect little embellishment! Let's make a list of possibilities: Fabric covered button ... push-pins, magnets, bobby-pins, rings, bracelets, hair clips, over-sized paper clips/book markers. Oh! The possibilities are ENDLESS! You can get them in a great range of sizes; small (like the ones in this tutorial) up to over 1" in diameter.

Now I know there are a lot of tutorials out there but since I incorporate fabric covered buttons into several of my projects, I figured I'd make a simple photo tutorial for you. With a just a few simple supplies and a few minutes of your time ... you'll be popping out cover buttons of your own!
