Sew buttons on back to back and weave in ends. :)
The skull buttons I used are about 3/4 inch wide and an inch long. The round buttons on the backside are about 3/4 inch wide and are actually a little too small for the holes.

I like to wear mine with the P3, K1 side out. :D

Hey Rachel, this is Melissa, Scott's wife. . .I was stumbling when I came across this, I saw the icon and was like HEY I know that person!

just thought I would drop in and say hi! (scott has an LJ too, but he NEVER posts, probably because I want him to :p he is pacotechguy)
