making_stuff: (Sewing)
I wanted 'pearl' buttons, but the ones I had were a bit too small. They pulled through the buttonholes. So I beaded a little cup for each one. The cup has a hole in the bottom, for the shank of the button. I just slip it over the shank and sew the button in place and voila – the cup is anchored in place and the button is too small no longer.
Before and after:
I love it when my inner MacGyver comes up with ideas like this. Creative solutions on a budget – what's not to love?
