Fabric Button Cover RIngs

By Curdsnwhey
So a while ago I posted how to make these cute rings over on Sweet Peas and Bumblebees blog.  If you visited there blog and saw it you noticed my pictures were horrible.  Well I took some better pictures of the finished product and now it's time to post it here.
Fabric Button Cover RIngsI came up with this idea for my daughters birthday party. She is going to have a pirate party so I thought it would be so fun to do these rings as part of there goody bag.
Items Needed For Project:
Fabric with a small design
7/8 inch craft cover button kit
Ring with pad
Industrial strength adhesive like E-6000
Mod Podge (optional)
Fabric Button Cover RIngsFirst you are going to lay your fabric out and take the clear template and trace the outside of it onto your fabric.  The inside circle is what will show on the ring.

Fabric Button Cover RIngsI also decided to make a few hair pins that match.  They turned out super cute.
Fabric Button Cover RIngsNow go make some for you and your little girlie.
