And here is an Earring Tutorial from the cheerful Casa de Lewis blog

You can skip steps 1-5 on her tutorial and just whip up your buttons with the iTOP and then just hot glue them to your earring backs.

Too simple, huh?! 
Wow ’em with the Wine Bottle…
Isn’t this a great way to spuce up that wine bottle you are taking to your friend’s Christmas party?
How simple… Just make a pretty button (or two or three), cut out a few fabric leaves and a square of fabric/burlap and tie it all together with some raffia around your bottle. Just lovely.
And of course our favorite has got to be embellishing those beautiful quilts!
Bunny Hill is such a perfect example of how covered buttons can add that special touch to your quilt.
Their A Tisket A Tasket block of the month is absolutely darling with its little button embellishments.

 Here is a little video to see how easy the iTOP is…

I’m in need of stocking patterns to make some stockings for my newest pet, Gracie and future ones. The previous ones were made by a sister-in-law.

  1. I follow your blog, and other than adding buttons to every quilt and pillow that I make.. LOL. I think it would make super cool doggie collars for my cutie patooties.. they are my babies, and have to be the envy of the entire neighborhood!

  2. I follow your blog and am getting some great ideas. Yesterday I saw a really cute knitted cap with a fabric flower attached. If I win the button tool, I’ll use it to embellish hats for my great-nieces.

  3. This would bring so much to me in my dressmaking! Would love to create my own buttons but also to create those earrings – great idea!

  4. This has to be one cool tool! What a great way to embellish a quilt or even make covered buttons for totes and clothes. I do think there are endless projects that this tool would work for. Thanks!

  5. Dear Moda Santa,
    With age comes arthritis. This new Itop Button maker sure would make my hands hurt less!! Oh and the wonderful gifts I could make for the beautiful people in my life!
    Love,
    Debi

  6. What a wonderful tool, to have something like that for making covered buttons for costumes and wedding dresses would make my life so much easier!

  7. I love covered buttons. Reminds me of my teen years when I was making a lot of my own clothes and often made covered buttons. I would love this tool to add embellishments to some quilts, including Bunny HIll’s “A Tisket, A Tasket.” I’d also use it to make cute accents on dresses I make for my granddaughters!!

  8. I love making covered buttons for bag and tote embellishments but the Dritz cover do-dad can be a bit fussy. This would make things so much easier! thanks for the chance.

    And I’m a follower. 🙂

  9. I love this button maker. I would no longer have to look for buttons to match the bags I make because I could make some awesome ones with this tool.

  10. Okay this is the one Santa has to bring me. I’m already dreaming of the things I can make and the fabrics I have in my stash that could be better used as button fabric.

    Please, please, Santa I’ve been very good this year.

  11. Oh my gosh!! This is the coolest thing I have ever seen! I have all kinds of projects whizzing through my head! Thanks for entering me in the chance to win one! 🙂

  12. WOW – LOVE this one!! Somehow I missed ever seeing this gadget or otherwise would have it already…:) Besides its use, it also brings sush wonderful childhood memories…my mom would mostly have her dresses made and with covered buttons too! As a kid I would take the fabric to the “button lady” to have them done (yes there were “button ladies” in former Yugoslavia, few decades ago, where clothes were mostly tailor made rather than bought in the store.
    If I win this, I will immediately call my mom (still overseas) and tell her that I can be a “button lady” now!! 🙂

  13. I love sewing gadgets!! I can see alot of buttons in my future projects–IF I could win this. Enjoying your “days of Christmas”.

  14. I’d love this button maker,
    to make buttons for my stuff.
    Button earrings, bracelets, pendants, quilts,
    I’d never make enough!

    I love tied quilts with buttons,
    It’s such a rustic look.
    The possibilities are endless –
    maybe you’ll write a book?

  15. I’d love to make fabric jewelry with this awesome tool….using MODA fabric, of course!

    Thanks “sew much” for the chance to win your giveaway!!

  16. Years ago, when dinosaurs ruled the earth or so, mom used to sit and stuff and pull and hammer her fabric into buttons. What a great tool! Much easier then the old days!

  17. I make covered buttons all the time for my craft and sewing projects but always make them with the little rubber cup that comes in the package. This would make it so very easy to do! What a great giveaway!

  18. I have so many quilts that would love to have custom made buttons on them. That would just open up a whole new way to embellish & personalize my projects. Please, please Santa! Frances

  19. I was just going through my old buttons looking for one for a project I am doing today and could not find what I wanted! If I had one of these that would have been – problem solved!

  20. I have made self-covered buttons for years…but, I’ve never really thought of jewellery…hmmm. Just think how many more I could make with a gadget like that….earrings, and bracelets and brooches, oh my!

  21. I love this tool and would love to have it. Looks like it makes covered buttons easier to make. All of the projects you showed are are beautiful.

  22. I can’t even imagine all the gifts I could make with this button maker. I have 2 daughters, 3 daughters-in-law and four grandaughers, all who love earrings and embellishments. This would be so much fun if it showed up in my stocking.

  23. Dear Santa,

    I like to coordinate my quilts with throw pillows. If I had the button maker I could embellish the pillows with covered buttons using left over fabric from the quilt.

  24. I want to start making some bracelets with these buttons…embroidered buttons, cross stitched buttons, or just pretty fabric buttons, think of the options, I could make one for every holiday and season…oh the possibilities! 🙂

  25. I really need this tool. Imagine not having to spend all that time searching for the perfect button, when you can make it so easily. This is great!

  26. I love this button maker! I follow this blog. With this button maker I would put covered buttons on every purse I make, and I would make pins for all my friends. If Santa brought me this I would squeal with delight!

  27. Oh! What a great gadget! I would love to have one so I could make fun buttons from all my fabric scraps. Then I could make lots of button jewelry and never have to worry about having a matching button again!

  28. first time to see such a neat tool. I haven’t covered buttons in a long time as it was kind of a hassle. Would love to add this to my sewing tools…thanks for the daily posts…have really enjoyed them.

  29. Ingenious! I love the iTop, it looks so quick ‘n’ easy. I definitely need this timesaver in my life. No more bruised thumbs trying to snap buttons together! I could use it for Rudolf’s red nose, Santa’s black buttons or a string of lights on my Christmas cushions, the ideas are flowing.

  30. I have been drooling over this in the stores since I first saw it! Love to have one for all my crafty obsessions! Also just had two nieces born this year who I will be making all of their “fussy” clothes for, and this would be fantastic for that too…. Fingers crossed!

  31. If Santa left one of these in my stocking I would happily use it to embellish bags and quilts and other crafts but I could also use it to make buttons for the kids clothes I have dancing in my head… my great niece would be the best dressed on the block.

  32. soo would love to have one of these. with money being tight this year i could make some really nice gifts that look as good as store bought. new to this blog. loving it!!

  33. I would love to win an iTOP! I have been eyeing it for some time!I made 6 of the bracelets for my sewing buddies… using a charm pack of Jovial. Now I want to make bracelets to go with lots of outfits!

  34. This is a great gadget. I’d love to have one to make buttons for pillows. Also like the idea of making those cute earrings for all the gals on my Christmas list.

  35. With 4 little girls growning up near by…I could by the Nana in the Sky….making all those button covered items….
    Pleasure for both me and them! Oh Santa, please fill my pattern for a christmas stocking..I swear it’s not too big…

  36. To be honest. This is something I would not have given a second look (and almost didn’t) until I saw what you created with it.
    So now my mind is spinning and I sure hope Santa puts this in my stocking so I can play….

  37. I would love one of these tools. I saw it demonstrated and they sold out before I could get one. The person demonstrated making a flower on a jacket and making the center with this tool.

  38. Now that’s a great giveaway! I would love one of these, please. It would be fun to be able to use some scrap fabric and add the sweet extra detail to my projects.

  39. I’ve saw the video and would love to have one of these! I can’t believe how much easier it will make covering buttons. Honestly, where has it been all my life?

  40. I’m a follower and I would love to win this so I could start putting covered buttons on everything! They couldn’t be any cuter..much cuter than the buttons you can buy and much cheaper too!

  41. I love to make little gifts for my quilting friends and guild members. This would be perfect for making those gifts! I am a blog follower.

  42. I have wanted the Imaginisce iTOP button maker since I first saw a video about them. What a fabulous addition to any crafting room, no matter what type of crafting you do. I’m sure those adorable bracelets would be my first thing to make for Christmas gifts. I have a Granddaughter that would be THRILLED if I made her one using the Hello Kitty fabric I have waiting to be made into something for her. Can you imagine? A cute little Hello Kitty bracelet? I’d be the bestest Grandma ever. And what Grandma doesn’t want those kind of brownie points? LOL

  43. I had no idea that I needed this-until the blog post! This gadget is so cool-love the bracelets. They’d make great gifts for my sister-in-laws.

  44. I would want this so that my love for all things with buttons would be even more fabulous . just watched a tutorial at MSQC to make covered buttons for hair clips for little girls. yes with a house full of girls this would be wonderful to win this. Those who have one (fig tree quilts)to do pillows with buttons love it. thank you for the chance to win. Janita

  45. I would LOVE to add this tool to my sewing studio – it would make creating my own buttons a breeze! Moda Santa please put this in my stocking…

  46. This iTop is HIGH on my want list – I saw it on the Fig Tree pillows and have wanted one ever since! Pillows, jewelry, quilt ties, and thumb tacks are some of the things I’d use it to make.

    Thanks for the opportunity!!

  47. Lots of fun possibilities – little girl’s hairbows, for my Amy Butler bags that are in the queue…Thanks for the chance to win!

  48. i LOVE THIS. i have been covering my buttons for YEARS by hand! does a number on the nails!!! and i never go and get manicures…this would sooo keep my fingers from looking like they got gnawed off by a rabid dog!! lol

  51. I know the first thing would be to make that cute button bracelt for everyone I know for Christmas. I would also treat myself with a few bracelets.

  52. Because I think it is MAGICAL that you can take fabric and metal and make a button! I would probably use it to make a calendar that’s been on my to-do list for ages.

  53. I would love to win the iTop button maker. I have been looking for one for the last year. There are so many projects that could be made easier! Some of your ideas are real cute!

    Thanks for the chance to win :o)

  56. This button maker is awesome, I have not seen it before, but if I won it I would have to pass it on to Santa to put it in my daughters stocking. She uses all her quilts scraps to make buttons to dress up all sorts of things. One of my favorites is she clumped 3 buttons toghether in asst. fabrics on a ribbed tank top, it was so cute. She would absolutley love the button maker….

  57. Ohhh I have been eyeing this little gadget for a long time I so really want one. All those cute buttons it makes are adorable. Please Santa put one in my stocking and I promise to be good from here on ;-}

  58. I’m just imaging my cats getting ahold of these fabric covered buttons – LOL. May have to make some and attach some feathers for their amusement.

  63. i do applique and love all the gadgets and embellishers that could be used doing this. would love to have a button maker … thanx for the opportunity to win one.

  64. I tried to make buttons recently. It was hard, if the fabric slips even a little you have to start over. I would love this stocking stuffer because I never saw a tool I didn’t want!

  65. Oh Santa I would love to have one of these show up in my stocking so I could gift it to my daughter. You see Santa we made cute bulletin boards for the grandkids’ teachers last year and the kids had a hard time doing the button tacks. This year their new teachers are going to get them for Christmas but we need that tool desperately.

  66. It would be all about the earrings. My DGD has pierced ears. She would love custom button earrings to go with every outfit. Thanks for the opportunity.

  67. Ooooooooooooh! I would love, love, love to win this. Keeping my fingers crossed! I’ve seen button earring tutorials all over the net and have been very impressed 🙂

  68. While I love my grandmother’s vintage buttons, MY fabrics are sometimes too “today” and could really use something flashy! Love this button maker and would love to win one.

  69. I would love to have one of these, simply because I never thought of making buttons before. This would be an excellent tool to not only whittle down my scraps, but make great gifts in the process!

  70. Oh these would be so useful, It would be like a handmade button and add that final touch to everything…I am talking me into one!!!seriously…it would be fabulous and no end of fun in my studio.

  71. I can think of lots of ways to use one of these button makers in making clothes for my granddaughters embellishing my quilting. Looks pretty handy.

  72. I’ve been wanting one of these for quite some time but just haven’t splurged for it! Love the ideas you shared for the uses! My head is spinning with all the great gift ideas you shared!! Thanks for a chance!

  73. I would be so thankful to win one of these. It would be perfect to make Christmas gifts of those earrings for all my Brownies!! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  74. Dear Santa, Please leave an i-TOP in my stocking so I can use it to embellish a stitchery I’ve worked on all year. I promise to use the i-TOP to make a Santa button to go on the block that will be revealed tomorrow. Thank you Santa – you are TOPS, i-TOP that is.

  75. Santa needs to bring me this i-top because I asked him for one last year and he didn’t deliver. I may have to stop believing if this keeps up. I make a lot of fabric covered buttons for ponytail holders and fun bobby pins. Thanks!

  76. well, i have some friends i could actually just hand them a bunch of sweet buttons and they would make something crazy cool. or i could make some quick presents for sisters…

  77. I could make lots of “Cute as a button!” gifts to give, AND add them to quilts and pillows and clothing AND the kitchen towels I make personalized to the receiver!! REALLY want one now!!!

  78. My daisy troop is collecting hats and mittens for girl scouts in need of winter clothing. I would love one to bling up store-bought hats and scarves

  79. I probably haven’t made covered buttons since the 70s. I love any tool that makes life easier. Thanks for the giveaway. Kathie L in Allentown

  80. What was old is new again! Fabric buttons used to adorn the most exclusive garments, now they can adorn almost anything. I want to make those cute fabric covered buttons too!

  81. Gosh, so many things to make using this! I would use it for Christmas decorations first. Sweet little Angel face buttons with wings attached!

  82. This is certainly a lot easier than the method I’ve used forever! Love all the fun projects, the flower pin, etc. I have several Bunny Hill BOM and all of the fabric. I’d love to make buttons for them. I’d love to find this in my stocking!

  83. Santa, with this ingenious invention, I can finally finish my cupcake quilt with red buttons for cherries. I can also do noses on reindeers. I can also …. Oh, I love this gadget!

  84. I would love Santa to bring me this great accessory tool. I especially like it as the centers to the yo yos. There is a project involving a wooden spool, embroidery and a button that I have wanted to make as a gifty for a sewing friend for a while.

  85. I have one whole store in this tiny podunk town that I live in where I can buy buttons. It’s the big store that starts with a W. And they don’t have the greatest selection. So I’m always on the hunt for good buttons for my bags, clothes, etc. This would make my life SO much easier! I really hope Santa puts one in my stocking this year!

  86. I’d love to win one of these as I have such a major crush on covered buttons and I’ve been wanting to buy one for so long! But I just haven’t been able to justify for my fiancée why I can’t just make them by hand…

  87. how cute, I had something similar a zillion years ago when I was a teen and sewed my clothes. It wasn’t pink and pretty though!! Pretty please! Thanks, Sandi

  88. Who would have thought there would be so many ways to make covered buttons and use them? Boggles my mind, for sure. I have a Christmas Quilt that I want to put buttons on so winning this would be a great start to finish a neat quilt. Thanks.

  89. I NEED this gadget!! I have to have one! Why? Well… do I have to have a reason? OK, well there isn’t really anywhere local for me to buy nice buttons that don’t cost the earth, and this way I can make my own!

  90. The iTop is definitely a very useful tool that’s going onto my wish list. I can see so many uses for this tool after seeing so many tutorials using it.

  91. No idea which ones I entered so I am just making sure I comment on all 🙂 and I missed this one too. Wow… this is what I get for taking a break from reading blogs.

  92. I have never seen this tool before and it is totally amazing. Covered buttons are usually a pain to do but this is a got to have tool. I love it and hope Santa remembers where I live.
