A great way to use up all your odd buttons.
I bought a packet of white and cream buttons from a charity shop, and couldn’t figure out what to do with them. I eventually decided to sew them onto a pillow cover for our spare bedroom.

  • Step 1

    Print out the heart template, cut around the edges and trace onto your cover or fabric. You can also trace the pattern by taping the paper and cover onto a window or piece of glass. After that you’re able to sew on the buttons to fill up the space (this is where an embroidery hoop really helps). Don’t pull too tightly between the buttons, otherwise the fabric will pucker. When you’re done you can put the cover in the washing machine (gentle cycle) to wash off the pencil outline if necessary.
