Tutorial: Missing Button Quick Fix
A safety pin (medium to large size works best) and a pop tab off of a soda can.
Not only is the pop tab button a great quick fix, but I think it would look really cute for kids and teens projects like cuffs or small
bags. It would also be a great button for younger kids to practice sewing with since the holes are so large. They could simply sew around the center post over and over and secure with a knot in the back. It’s a great way to reuse what you already have and the kids could even paint the buttons, too!
Have you ever used a pop tab as a button? Do you have your own missing button “quick fix” technique? I am looking forward to using pop tab buttons in future craft projects, and I would love to hear about or see pictures of any of your projects using
these nifty little objects!
