|Friday Fun Fact!
A question I often hear in class is this: what's the right way to sew on buttons?
I don't mean how many strands of thread, or making thread shanks, or any of those fine details. People just want to know, if a button has 4 holes, do you sew an X or two lines?
The great answer is there is no wrong way!
You can sew two lines vertically, two lines horizontally, an X, a square, a square with an X in it, or any other pattern you can think of!
Any way you sew that button that goes through all the holes evenly is gonna hold it in place just fine, I promise. You can choose the way you like best!
Follow for more you're-probably-not-doing-it-wrong tips!
