i-top Button Feature - Day 2



Our Design Team has had so much fun creating a variety of projects using the i-top tool and the Button Daddies and today we have some great projects to share with you.



Dishtowel Gift Set

I made a custom dish towel set. First, I cut the fabric to the size I wanted, used some heat-bond to affix it to the towel and then sewed it on for good measure. Then, using the extra fabric I had leftover from cutting the accent on the towel, I sat down to make the buttons.



I used the medium and large buttons. I cut circle with my scissors and then used the i-Top to make the buttons. It was fast and easy! I made a quick gift tag with a manilla shipping tag and a piece of paper from the Childhood Memories collection.



A stamped sentiment at the top of the tag, and then I adhered the buttons with some thin foam dots. I could have sewn them on, but in this case, I just used a little adhesive.






A quick hostess gift or thank you for someone special. Pair it with some kitchen goodies, and you have a great addition to a gift basket.

SUPPLIES
TOWEL: 2 small dish towels, sewing machine, heat-bond, fabric, May Arts ribbon
GIFT TAG: Imagnisce i-Top tool, Medium and Large buttons, manilla shipping tag, Imaginisce Childhood memories pattern paper, stamped sentiment, thin foam dots, baker's twine






Coffee/Tea Cup Cozy

I love using my i-top tool to create buttons because it is just super easy to do.
I knit this fun little coffee cup warmer from some left over wool that I had and then I used my i-top tool to cover the Button Daddies with some gray felt.

I simply sewed the buttons onto my finished project and slipped the warmer on the cup!
Super easy & super fun!

That coffee cup cozy certainly is cute! I have several patterns for these but haven't tried on yet but I may just borrow that idea! I am working on a suitcase album that needs a button, this would be a great tool to make that.
