|In order to finish the back of the button I cut a circle of orange felt very slightly smaller than the button.|
|That piece was whipstitched to the back of it.|
|The thread was not knotted after the whipstitch. It was then brought up in the center.|
Now a loop will be created in order to stitch the button to it's final destination.
|The now-famous chopstick is used to gauge a loop size.|
Two loops of the thread create the base for the following step, which is to lap the thread through this loop to make a sturdy shank for the button.
|Now the loop is reinforced by bringing the thread around and around it.|
It now will stand up.
|The Back of the Button|
|The Front of the Button|
This was a very satisfying project.
Thank you again to Diane Gilleland of Craftstylish for the tutorial!
Good Evening, All
