I teach high school students on the weekend, and one of my coworkers loves science. She lives and breath science. So when I saw this chemistry fabric, I knew I had to purchase it and make something for her.

Chemistry Fabric Pins

Chemistry Fabric Pins came right to mind. She could wear them wherever she goes. I also made enough for her to share with others. 


Guess what?! There is no sewing involved!! 


Let’s get right to it!!

Science Fair Periodic Table Multi Fabric by Robert Kaufman

Dritz Craft Cover Button Kit – Size 30 (3/4″) and 36 (7/8″)

Rotary Cutter and Mat

Strong Glue

Pin and backs

Scissors (optional)

Fabric Marker (optional)


The Craft Cover Button Kit comes with all the pieces you need to make different buttons based on the size you purchase.


Included in the kit: are buttons, plain backs, shank backs, a clear template, and tools.


Cut the fabric: Using the clear template, center the image in the center of the template and use the rotary cutter to cut the circle out. If you aren’t steady with the rotary cutter, use a fabric marker and trace a circle, then cut with a pair of scissors.


Repeat for each button.

Making the Button

Step One: Place the transparent tool on the table with the opening facing upwards.

Step Two: Center the fabric over the opening.


Step Three: Place the button on top of the fabric and push down with your fingers. Turn it over to make sure your design is centered. If not, remove both pieces and start again.

Step Five: Use the blue tool to push the plain back onto the button, sealing the fabric ends underneath. You will know it’s closed once you hear a click or feel the click.
