I had a customer recently request large buttons to be added onto their Car Seat Tent.
I have seen all the adorable buttons that some are putting on their tents but I have had a really hard time finding any cute ones that would match what I make.
So then here comes plan B...Make my own.
I had considered doing this before but had been too chicken to try it out. I decided to jump in full force and bought some polymer clay from my local Joann's.
Then I rolled 2 of the bars together and flattened it out with my rolling pin.
Next I took a large circle cookie cutter that is about 3 inches across and cut out a circle.
Then I rolled the remaining 2 bars and the rest from the first 2 bars together and flattened it out. Then I cut out the other circle.
Next I found a small dowel that I poked the 2 button holes through.
Then I measured how thick my buttons were and by directions on the package I baked for 15 minutes.
They came out beautifully. I let them cool off and then hand sewed them onto the car seat tent handles with crochet thread. I used crochet thread mostly because it is quicker and thicker so it should hold up better.
Really this whole process took me about a 1/2 hour to complete and I LOVE they way they turned out. Don't you?
