**This tutorial is intended for personal use only.**
I received a question from Cheryl Lynn asking how to attach a jeans button to the center of a flower pin. I'm sure that some of you were wondering the same. I thought that I would show you with a few pictures. It seems that the indention between the top and bottom of the button is the perfect place to hide the mechanics of a pin.
With needle and thread, take a running stitch along the bottom edge of the petals.
Gather petals into a circle. Pull tight, making sure that the gathered edges fall into the indention between the top and bottom of the button. Tie off securely. Clip thread.
The bottom of the button will show on the back. You may choose to cover it with a piece of felt before attaching a pin back or leave it as is to show that it is a recycled jeans button.
The perfect embellishment for a recycled denim handbag!
Take care, everyone!
