Can you sew a button??

The standard response when people find out I sew all day is “Oh I really admire people who can sew, I cant even sew a button!!” This gob smacks me but it shouldnt as even my own sister cant sew a button & yet our Mother is one of the most talented sewist I know. Buttons never fell off any of the clothing she made for us.

Now sewing on a button isnt rocket science it really is easy just take a look here & you will see, so why not grab a needle, some thread, a button  & give it a go? You never know you may end up liking it 😉

Happy stitching

    just to sew them on? Sometimes I feel
    quilty charging that, but they Want
    to pay me lol…I do teach those

    sew on a button.
