A simple way to make a big change is by using buttons. I used fancy, or blingy, buttons to change the appearance of plain pillows, and VOILA! A new look! It’s simply a matter of sewing a button of your choice onto any pillow, front to back. The thread needs to be strong or it will break when you pull it tight. You could use a button on just one side, or on both sides…the choice is yours. Just make sure you go back and forth, five or six times, pulling the thread tight to create a tuft. Before you tie off the thread, wrap it around the button about four times to ensure it stays secure and tight. Keep the size of the pillow in mind and use a button that is in scale with the pillow.
Button, Button, YOU’VE got the Button!
