I love sewing tips and hacks and this hand made embroidered button idea that I came across on Youtube is no exception and it has quickly become one of my favorite fun things to make of all time. You only need a button and some embroidery floss, yes it’s that easy. The Youtuber @Shehla_Kanwal shows you how to do it step by step in this wonderful tutorial. This DIY embroidered button tutorial will provide hours of fun for bored kids on holidays. Since I found this little embroidered button project I keep a little stash of embroidery floss and some large buttons to hand to the kids if they are getting tired, fidgety and irritable. I just pop out the yarn and they all get to work and I don’t hear a peep for hours.
- Embroidery Floss
- An Embroidery Needle (a regular needle will work as well)
Start the embroidery button project off by making a loop and tying it off. This anchors your embroidery floss and holds your project completely secure while you lace the embroidery floss throughout the surface od your button.
Then you lace the embroidery floss around your button covering completely. You can either use solid thread or tie on different colors, the video will show you exactly how to do that tie on joins and you will find them completely easy. As a matter of fact, this entire project is a breeze.
This is such a fun project and can really add a colorful upgrade to any article of clothing.
