{Product Focus} Cover Button Tool - Fab Little Invention!

If its one thing that seems to catch peoples eye at the craft fairs (apart from the spotty buttons that look like sweets!) its the cover button tool.  Mainly, the first question is "What on earth is that?" followed by "Ooooh how does it work".

Looks like an odd contraption but trust me, its so much fun!
So, what do you do with your fabric scraps?  Do you feel guilty throwing out even the smallest scrap?  Do you think that you could do something with it?  Well, Im very pleased to say, this will help!  It comes with a guide as to the size of fabric to cut depending on the size of the button you want to make (we currently stock 11mm and 19mm cover buttons).

The end result looks a little bit like this...

Be warned, however, it is addictive!  Once you start button making, its hard to stop.  However, now there is no excuse not to have the perfect button for every project :)
