Default Re: Button pony o's


If you search button pony O's or fabric covered buttons, you'll find a few posts about this--they were very helpful.

I've been making these for a couple of months now. I haven't sold a whole lot, but I use them almost everyday myself!
A few tips:
Make sure you use some sort of interfacing (I think that is what it is called) because without it, you can see the shiny part through most fabrics. I (rather my husband!) take the wire out then reattach it through the elastic. I have also seen for sale at a boutique ones that were just looped through. The rubber bands were thinner than the ones I use, so I guess it would work and not come undone. I haven't seen the zip tie ones, but that sounds easy.
I like that after you put the button O in your hair, you can move the button to the top or wherever you want it. It might be harder to do that with the loop method. I'm not sure about the zip tie method.

Hope this helps some!
