Button Up

I realized after yesterday's post about my cardi face lift that I took for granted my 15+ years of sewing experience, and didn't show you how to sew on a button! I found this great website with amazing photos of the exact step by step process. So check out Wikihow.com for a great tutorial on how to sew on a standard button (4 holes). I swear it is super simple and a quick way to update your old pieces.

I actually used a button with a shank (a small loop on the back of the button instead of four holes) so here is a great tutorial from AngelaOborne.com. She takes you step by step with close up pictures on how to sew on this style of button.
I would have done the tutorials myself but I am flying back to Chicago today WITH my hubs!! This will be the first trip back home together in 8 months so this is a long time coming. Our extended Labor Day will be full of family, friends, weddings, and BBQs. I can not even express how pumped I am!!
