Supplies:

  • Three yards of DMC floss
  • Number 9 crochet hook
  • One four-hole shirt button

Directions:

Insert hook through one hole in button. Yarn over and pull thread through, doing a slipstitch. Chain five.

Yarn over and pull thread through the same hole doing a slipstitch. Chain five. Repeat this step approximately five times. You’ll have five little petals in one buttonhole. Keep doing this until you have filled up all holes in the button. I usually go through the same hole five times.

   

Attach the end to the beginning top or bottom stitch with a slipstitch. Leave about eight to ten inches of thread hanging. Cut. The hanging thread is used to sew to your project.

You can add tiny glass beads to the center for a real flower effect.

Enjoy!
