What you need:
Cover button kit (Comes with all of the instructions and tools that you need. Mine came in a pack of four from JoAnns.)
Adjustable ring band (Got mine at Michaels)
Your handy dandy pair of pliers
Scraps of fabric
Adhesive glue (E-6000, epoxy)
Got everything? Let's go!
Cut your fabric. I made myself a tracer to make it easier. If you use a half circle tracer, be sure to fold the fabric in half.
Lay it flat and then flip it over.
Put the fabric inside the hollow white portion of the button kit. Remember to put it in upside down.
Take the front button piece and place it on top of the fabric.
Push the button piece, rounded side down, into the fabric.
The fabric will bunch up on the sides. Tuck the sides in.
Place the back button piece on top of the tucked fabric. Using the blue tool, push hard.
Wah la! You have made a button.
Turn it over and you will see the shank. Take the shank out using your handy dandy pliers.
*Let me tell you how hard it is to have both of your hands in the picture while you are taking it!
One or two tugs and there you go! A shankless button.
Glue the adjustable ring band onto the button using your choice of glue.
And there you have it! A fabric ring of your very own.
Don't get carried away now!
I took so many pictures of my hand with the rings on. No matter how many pictures I took, my hands still looked wrinkly and old. I guess my hopes and dreams of becoming a hand model is out of the question!
