Button Embellished Top

Although summer is almost over (but not quite!) there is always time to create a T-shirt embellished with our Favorite Findings Shell BUTTONS!

 This is actually a top I had sitting in my closet (remember when cleaning out the closet/drawers – think,  can I create something with this? and I guarantee you – you’ll be suprised what you come up with). 


  • Favorite Findings Shellz Buttons – 2 bags
  • Recycled T-shirt
  • Multi Strand Beads
  • Embroidery Floss
  • Scissors

Although it may seem like ALOT of buttons – I was able to use 2 packs of the Shellz Buttons

These Favorite Findings Shellz Buttons #1802 – you will get 4 sizes (12 each) 1/2″, 5/8″, 3/4″. and 7/8″. You will need 2 packs of these.

When out shopping I found these beads that were on strands (jewelry department) and although I may not use everything on this project I know I’ll have extra for future projects. PS – there were plenty of other colors available on strands…

So I pre-washed my top and had everything ready: scissors, embroidery floss; needle (make sure to find a needle that the bead will be able to slide through.

My start point was at the neckline – remember there is no right or wrong.  Have fun with this.

Overlap buttons!

Keep going until you’ve reached the other side. I strongly recommend that you don’t go completely around the neck of the t-shirt, however this is your preference. Remember when your have long hair it may get tangled!

So what are you waiting for get out there and start stitching those buttons on!
