MAKING THIS CLOCK WAS REALLY FUN TO DO A BIT CHALLENGING BUT WORTH THE RESULTS IT COST IN TOTAL £8 TO MAKE

1.FOLD FABRIC IN A SQUARE AND MARK A CENTRE AND THE 12 -3 -6- 9 OLOCK POSITIONS.

2.LAY OUT BUTTONS AND MARK EACH DOT WHERE EACH ONE WILL GO

3.SEW ON ALL BUTTONS MAKING SURE THEY ARE SECURE, I SEWED THROUGH ABOUT 10 TIMES.

4. TRACE THE CIRCLE ON THE INSIDE WITH A PENCIL THEN TAKE FABRIC OUT AND TRACE A CIRCLE ON A LIGHTWEIGHT PIECE OF CHIPBOARD OR CARDBOARD.

5.THIS GIVES STABILITY TO THE CLOCK MECHANISM AND KEEPS THE FABRIC FROM SAGGING .

6. USE SPRAY ADHESIVE TO FIX CARDBOARD ONTO THE FABRIC AND THEN PUT IT BACK INTO THE HOOP.

7. PRESS FABRIC AND GLUE THE CARDBOARD ONTO THE BACK AND RESET IT INTO THE HOOP.

8. CUT THE FABRIC TO ABOUT 1 1/2 INCHES AROUND AND JUST STICK THE UNFINSHED EDGE ONTO THE CARDBOARD

9. THEN SCREW A HOLE TO MAKE A HOLE IN THE CENTRE AND ASSEMBLE THE CLOCK MECHANISM.

10. ENJOY YOUR NEW CLOCKbutton clock2buttonclock3buttonclock4button clock6button clock7buttonclock
