I wanted my cute flowers to have a button for the center but I just couldn’t find the right ones. Well, actually I did find the right ones but they were EXPENSIVE. So, I thought why not try to make my own. If you have been following this blog at all you know that I use circles in my appliqués all the time. I figured you could just use the same technique but instead of pressing at the end just pop a button in there. Here’s how I did it.
I found these inexpensive buttons at the craft store.
I cut a circle of fabric slightly less than twice the size.
Here I am taking a running stitch around the edge.
Now place the button in the center.
And pull tight…ta da!!! A custom button!
