If you haven't noticed yet, I love to embroider! And though I like to leave my embroideries in the hoop, I've been trying to come up with different ways to use my designs. So for this tutorial, I'm making fabric covered buttons. Aren't they cute?!

Let's get started!

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Using the template from the covered button kit, trace a circle onto the fabric.

  • Place the top part of the button in the center of the circle and trace around it. The smaller circle is the area where you will be embroidering.

For my embroidery designs, I don't like to draw on the fabric with pencils or markers. I prefer to sew the circles with thread and them remove them.  But you can use whichever method you'd like!

  • Begin stitching! You can make these as simple or as complex as you'd like. Get creative and combine the stitches that you like.

If you're new to embroidery, I've linked to a few embroidery stitches tutorials below.
