Remember the $0.99 jacket I bought at Goodwill a few weeks ago?
It was cute the way I bought it, but it was missing the bottom button. Rather than try to track down a matching button I just decided to use all new buttons and jazz it up a little bit. I found some cute buttons at Hobby Lobby – $2.70 for 6. I cut off the old buttons, sewed on the new ones, and easy-peasy I had a new jacket.
While at Hobby Lobby I also found some adorable fabric in the clearance/remnants bin that matched so I bought it to use to make a pin for my jacket.
The first flower I made like the ones I showed you here. I put a pin on the back of it to pin onto the jacket.
These yo-yo’s were a new venture for me. I used this tutorial to learn how to make them. They were actually pretty easy to make. I put the leftover button in the middle of the big flower and glued a pin on the back. The smaller flower I just glued to a bobby pin to make a little hair clip.
which one looks better?
