Fabric covered buttons - how to make them, how to use them...

Hello Button Floozies!
I don't know whether you have seen it on my blog or not, but I thought I might share it with you :)
Some time ago I fell in love with the fabric covered brads. But I live in Poland and it is still quite difficult to buy some things here, and as I'm impatient and can't wait long I usually have to be creative :)
I had some fabric covered buttons, like here:
After adding some Prima flowers they looked like this:And I had to try one of them on the card:
But I just kept thinking.... and I made some more fabric covered buttons myself!
Here they are:
I added some fabric or paper flowers, cheesecake cloth, and used stamps! Here are the effects:Want to find out how I did them? I don't have any devices, just fabric, button, thread, needle and scissors. Here is my simple tutorial.

Look how nice one of them looks on the layout:
They also look pretty great on pony tail holders I did for my niece:
They can be used to make rings, broches, badges or bobby pins! You can use them to add a fresh look to the pillow! Posibilities are endless!
And making them you can use buttons that are scratched and don't look that great on their own.
