Buttons and baby shoes

I decided to make a new baby shoe pattern.   I wanted to make a little flower to put on these little shoes so I made one out of ribbon and added a cute little button.

I love how they turned out and I actually made up the pattern to put on my etsy shop!  I love it when I get a pattern done, because writing patterns is not easy.

I was in the button mode and had seen some cute flowers made from buttons on Pinterest.

I got out my E 9000 glue and went to work.  First put your buttons in the shape of flower that you want.

Coat your top button with E 9000 glue, (hot glue just doesn't do the trick!)

Place the button on your arranged flower.
I then added 2 more buttons and the last one was  a cute lady bug button.  I did have to cut off the button prong on the back of the lady bug so it would sit flat.)

Once you start layering the possibilities are endless!!  ( Warning! If you don't want the buttons to be stuck to your counter, do your gluing on something that you can pull off) This warning comes from experience, It's a little hard to get the glue off of your counter.
After gluing I let the flowers sit over night.

I then added a small circle of felt and a pin.

Then added another circle of felt.  I think this helps as well to hold the flower together.
Aren't they so cute! and I can think of lots of places to use these little pins!


Love these cute little baby shoes as well!
Have a great week!
