Tutorial Tuesday # 15 - button bobby pins

Tutorial Tuesday # 15 - button bobby pins
Inspired by an image in this months issue of Making magazine, I deicide to show you how to make some button bobby pins. They are very easy to make and can be made to suit any age or colour palette.  
You will need:
buttons, 
bobby pins,
a needle
some embroidery floss separated into two strands

Sew the bobby pin onto the back of the button with the embroidery floss, overlapping the stitches will make it more secure.
