As part of Q and my date night last night, I dragged him to Jo-Ann's and used my coupon to buy blank shrinky dinks and a 1.5 inch fiskar hole punch because the wise people on the internet said that they shrink to 1/3 of the size and I was looking for 1/2 inch buttons. I don't advise if you try this yourself that you waste your money on the hole punch as we could not get it to punch the shrinky dink out. I would trace around a 1.5 inch washer or something. On a small kids sheet, I could get 15 1.5 inch disks.
Then I found a sheet of Star Wars drawings that I planned to trace here. Apparently my printer is out of ink and the ink I used to replace it was the wrong type so I ended up having to freehand it. I just drew them with pencil and colored them in with colored pencils.
They didn't come out as nicely as I wanted, but they aren't too bad, especially considering that I planned for the first ones to just be a trial.
I used a 1/4 inch hole puncher to punch the button holes and placed them on a foil lined sheet.
Then I popped them in the preheated oven. Supposedly, they are supposed to bake for 1-3 minutes, but it took over five for them to lay flat.
I think they came out pretty well.
I'll let you know how they do after going through the wash a few times...you know after I sew another Star Wars shirt for Q.
