How To Make Pin Buttons At Home

Pin-buttoning was created as an easy way to show off your inner self. It is typically done with small, printed badges that are sewn onto a shirt or dress. It is also usually done in a chain or membership style, where new members receive the first set of buttons put on a dress or shirt.

The main steps in making pin-button are: deciding what size button you want to make, picking the shape of the button, and then sewing the button onto your shirt or dress.

Buy some pin back holes

You will need four pin back holes, one per button. You will also need a tool to put the pin back in the hole, and then finally to close the hole and sew up the seam.

Choose your fabric

When choosing your fabric, do not go too far with the texture of your material. If you use fleece, for example, it has to be thick and plush. You want your pins to look sharp and professional!

The texture of your fabric should match the shape of your pins. If they are square, use thicklin-style fabrics such as wool or linen. If they are round, use soft, fluffy fabrics such as cotton or satin.

In making these kinds of crafts, you do not need very strong materials or equipment to operate with. All you have to have is a little imagination and some creativity!

To make brackets or feet for projects which require a certain amount of stabilizing force, I once glued some foam padding onto the bottom of a cup I had leftover from making stuffed toys earlier in the month.

Use the pin back as a guide to cut your fabric

Now that you have your pin back, it is time to cut your fabric. Create a trace of the pin back on each side of your fabric with a sharp knife or scissors. This will ensure that your pin back is cut in the right size and length of fabric.

Now that you have your button, it is time to sew it on! Start by placing the button on a Northern Exposure material clip and then sewing down the edge. Now, slowly pull the clip apart until the button is attached and safe to wear.

Wash and dry your fabric

Now for the fun part! Now that you have your white fabric, it is time to dye! You can use a machine or a hot iron.

To do a machine wash, go into the dryer with caution. Some machines require additional washing methods while others do not.

To check this with yours, go into the washer with a soft wash and see if it pulls away from the fabric. If so, try another one and keep changing out water and fabric until it works for you.

To check this with your ironing method, go light on the steam and see if it loses shape or relief. If so, try using a heavy block of fabric to cover up what could be lost on the ironing.

Put the pin back on the fabric and heat seal it

Now is the time to put your new pin button in! If you used a basic solid pin, then you can just heat seal the back of the fabric and let it sit until it is completely cool and firm. If you used a shaped pin, then you can just put it in and forget it!

Now is the time to cut your new pin button into pieces. Try your button on before taking it out of the heat machine to make sure it looks alright. Once that is done, take some hot water and carefully peel away the backing.

Now is the time to sew them onto your piece! Place one corner of your new pin button on top of one end of your new needle and start sewing.

Let it dry completely

When the weather is right, start making your pins at home. When is the right time for this to be done in?

When your hair is wet! Once your hair is dry, it will not turn into pin hairs so easily.

To make your own glue, you need to use a liquid glue. The liquid glue does not harden completely until it dries, it only drips slightly until it comes together. To make your glue strong enough to hold the button in place, you have to use some heavy (> half a brick) weight glue.

To make your pins strong enough to last, these people would need to wear them for about a week and keep going over the same spot. They would also have to change up where they paste them because of hair growth or cracks show up.

Pin your project it!

When making pin buttonholes at home, the first step is to decide on how big you want your pin buttonhole to be. Many people make theirs about half an inch wide so that they can use a standard sized needle and thread.

The second is to determine how tight you want yourpin buttonhole to be. Some people use a slightly loose pinbuttonhole, while others use a very tight one. Once you choose your two restrains, determine what shape they must have.

Then, take some sewing thread and create a loop at the other end.
