I don't know what it is lately but everywhere I look I see buttons. Unfortunately, I could not find the ones I needed for my flag so....I made them myself. I have cleaned up my flag by hiding all the threads and looked at different ways to do the stars and finally decided on buttons. I have gone everywhere in town and on the internet and couldn't find the simple stars that I wanted. Tuesday nights are usually tatting night and I did go to tatting but with the help of my friend, Marie, we made buttons from polymer clay. These were fun to make too. I might be hooked on something else! We made over 120 buttons but they need to be baked. I have them at home to bake them and I'm going to borrow an oven from another friend. She uses this for nothing but polymer clay. As soon as I finish them, I'll show them to you. They are nothing special but they are exactly the size and shape of the stars that I wanted so they are special to me. I did not take pictures yet but I will to show you how many we made.
This was my first time to do anything with polymer clay but it was fun. I just might have to do some more of this stuff. After I bake these, I'll decide if I want to make anything else. It was easy and fun to do but I'm kind of nervous about the fumes. I've looked at various sites on the internet and they say to not use any of the pans or kitchen utensils for anything else. Wish me luck!
