These beaded buttons were made with blank button shells you can buy at the fabric store. I used 1.5" round shells. For this project you want to use the blanks that don't come with a tool. Unfortunately I bought the wrong kind for this demonstration! You want the kind with teeth in the upper shell to hold the fabric in place before you snap on the back.
These are really easy to make,and an easy bead embroidered project for any kind of application that might need a button or two.
Materials used: Fabric (I suggest something lightweight, like a sheer or light woven) 11/0 and 8/0 seed beads (any kind of bead that will work for a small project) Small embroidery hoop Beading needle and Fireline Scissors Glue dots (or double stick tape)
