Okay, this is way too cool, I have to share it with you guys!
Did you know you can make your own buttons from Shrink Plastic?! Truth be told, I’ve never heard of this magical substance called ‘shrink plastic’ till now, either.
Using a Fiskars circle punch of size ‘large’ gets you a 4 cm button (or roughly 1.5 inch button). I think that’s a bit large for most of our sewing needs, but you could easily use a smaller circle punch to get a smaller button, you’d just have to do some experimenting.
Tell me this isn’t the coolest thing you’ve seen?! Or am I just late to the party and everyone knows about this already…. heh
