Things you will need:
- Buttons with two eyes not four
- Black fabric marker OR needle and thick black thread or yarn
- T-Shirt or any other clothing (jeans etc.)
- Acrylic paint, white out or Sharpies for making eyes, lips etc. (optional)
You can paint your faces on before or after stitching onto the t-shirt...Make sure to stitch them on tightly, especially for younger children's clothing. Use black thread, the stitching will look like 'pupils'.
Tip: Place the button 'faces' where you want, then sketch your stick figures with a pencil. You can also place the buttons on a sheet of paper (the size of your t-shirt area) sketch with the buttons in place and then trace on the t-shirt.
Below, is an example of the stick figures sketched (left) and sewn with yarn (right)
Enjoy coming up with your own creations of button faces and bodies...I love this one with the cape!
It was done on paper. I might just frame it...
