I needed to make buttons made with cores. I used "Funky Foam" shapes and for the triangles I used foam board.
"Funky Foam" Shapes
Machine Stitchery to add interest to the fabric
Square and Rectangle Foam Shapes covered with the Machine Stitched Fabric
Square and Rectangle Buttons with embellishments of beads and ribbon
Circular Foan Foams covered with Fabric Ink Pen Drawn Spirals
Circular Buttons with Fabric Embellishments
Foam Board Cut into Triangles
Covered with Shop Bought Fabric
Wrapped with Threads and Embellished with Beads
I coloured a piece of Vilene with silk paints, probably not the correct thing to use but they coloured it and that was all I needed as the toggle shape was more important to me and all the colour had to do was be in the colour scheme! I added fabric and thread to some of them.
So there you have it, what I did this afternoon - I think the Button Chapter is well and truely put to bed.
