|I used a 1" diameter plastic ring for the base and cut a circle from an orange cashmere sweater.|
The circle is to be 2 1/2 times the diameter of the ring. Any size ring can be chosen.
|The gathering stitches are finished, the ring is placed inside, and the thread is pulled to gather the circle around the ring.|
|Now ready to push the excess inside.|
|The edges are now inside. I used the tool on the right to to the stuffing process.|
|Time to pull it all together.|
The thread, which is still attached, is used to make about 4 stitches perpendicular to each other to close the opening. This is the back of the button.
|Because of the stuffing process and the pulling together of the back, the button is now full.|
It is smooth and round.
