Default Is it hard to make your own fabric covered buttons?

Just wondering if it is easy to do?

I bought mine from HL. They have them in any craft section. I bought the actual buttons wholesale somewhere but I don't remember where. I just googled cover buttons. You can buy the kit there too.

Very easy. I can't believe I was so intimidated by them and when I made one, I was . So simple and quick. I love cutting my fabric circles with my sizzix dies. Makes it less time consuming.

I bought my kit at the fabric store, but I'm planning on buying the buttons on etsy.
