  • Turning cabochons into buttons or toy eyes, help needed

    Need to find backs for cabochons so can attach to knitting.

    I have knitted a dragon coloured bag and now a doing a dragon toy. I have managed to find some really cool dragon eye cabochons (20mm)t use for buttons on the bag and eyes (12mm) for the toy dragon. But I need to attach them to something so I can sew then onto the knitting. They have a flat back.

    ​​​​​​When I googled I found shank backs and safety eye backs in the USA and Australia bit struggled to find anything in UK. I did order some toy safety backs but when they arrived the flat back actually had a round lump in middle. So not going to stick well.

    It may be in looking for the wrong thing

    Any help in where to find something or other ideas for attaching would be really really appreciated as my dragon enthusiast great niece will be ten at end on month.

    Thanks
    Jane
