My ipad2 came in. I installed an app called craftgawker. It is filled with links to different crafts. I found a tutorial for barettes with buttons.  I didn't have any fabric to make covered buttons but I did find some cute silver buttons. 

The pictures are a little grainy (from the ipad).  I found the bobbi pins with the round pads ($1.50) and buttons ($0.67) at Hobby Lobby.  I took a pair of pliers and broke off the piece for attaching with thread to fabric.  I then hot glued the buttons to the round pads on the bobbi pins.
The finished bobbi pins are super cute.  I am excited to try some different styles and make fabric covered buttons to attach. 

Have a sweet day!
