Sewing Season Christmas Season is in full swing, isn’t it!?!
I don’t know about you, but the craziest gifts to come up with are not for family members or friends … but for the
millions of SIX teachers I get to give gifts. I am already pretty close to being out of budget for all gifts…so what’s a mom to do???
COVERED BUTTON PUSHPINS – BAM!
These are really super easy and super cheap – yet they really make people smile! I have already delivered 5 of the 6 of these gifts, so I’m speaking from experience when I say that they don’t look like cheapo gifts – and the recipients are pretty stoked!
Here’s how to make them…
You can see my first five sets here. I put them inside little fun cellophane bags. It was really a fun project to make and to give. I am fairly certain Ellie and Rosamund’s teachers felt loved.
Here’s the breakdown:
Cost: 5 covered buttons will cost you about $1.50. Cork squares – about 25 cents when cut in half. Thumb tacks – about 10 cents. Fabric – SCRAPS so free! Total cost (at most) per gift is under $2. LOVE THAT!
Time: about 10 minutes per gift…depending on how crazy those shanks are to remove.
I hope you’ll make some …you probably have these materials on hand already!
Merry Christmas Sewing Season!!!
PS: We made these at our Craft Crowd’s Make It Merry Christmas… head on over to their blog to see more photos! (If they’re not there, check back – I’m looking for my camera uploader thingie!)
