Tufting Buttons

So I wanted to re-cover Khloe's rocking chair to sell.  I found great $9/yd fabric at Hobby Lobby, sewed slip covers for the cushions and needed something more.  Enter tufting buttons.  Kirkham's Upholstery in American Fork can make tufting buttons out of any fabric for $1.50 a button.  To begin, decide where you want the buttons and come through the back side of the fabric with your needle and quilting thread. 

Hook button onto thread and place needle back through pulling on the back side.

Pull tightly and secure by sewing a knot in the back. (Go down and up through the fabric creating a knot with the thread.)

This is a very easy update to any cushions or pillows around your home!
