I've got a COLORFUL felt BUTTON SNAKE for you today - made in a moment, requiring really little sewing skills. It's one of the all-time favorite toys among toddlers, encouraging learning buttoning and fine motor skills through play.
Easy and quick to make - a perfect present for toddlers, don't you think?
It's quick and totally simple. You'll need:
- a button
- a ribbon
- several pieces of (thick) felt
HOW-to:1) Sew the button to one side of the ribbon.
2) Sew a small piece of felt on the other end of the ribbon (to prevent the squares from sliding off the 'snake'):
3) Cut the pieces of felt to your liking (I chose squares) and cut a button hole into the middle portion of each piece.
4) Done - the play can start!
I like button snakes because you can make them in so many colors! I make one here and there, as present for toddlers. And if you're like me, I am nearly 100% sure you want to make one for you too, right now ;)
