Are you a fabric hoarder? As a way to use some of my mountains of fabulous tiny scraps, I made these fabric-and-button barrettes. They’re fun, easy, and great for using little stashed vintage textile treasures and lonely buttons. You can make them in coordinating pairs or fun singles.
They’re fun, easy, and great for using up your fabric stash.
- Sealer, Optional (1) No-fray spray, I find it increases the life of my barrettes.
- Barrettes (1) Non-painted barrettes I use binding or hem clips; they’re cheaper and bare metal. The glue has a hard time grabbing the painted barrette; if you only have painted ones, use a metal file to scuff up the paint to help the glue grab hold.
- Buttons (1) cute, flat (sew-through) buttons.
- Fabric (1) ironed fabric scraps.
- Hot glue gun with glue.
- Pliers or tweezers.
