1-1⁄2"-diameter covered button
Water- or heat-soluble marking pen

Assemble the Button:

1. Trace pattern onto white paper. Using a light box or a sunny window, trace the pattern onto right side of yellow fabric using a water- or heat-soluble marking pen. Place fabric in a small embroidery hoop.

2. Use six strands of brown floss to straight-stitch tree. Start with one long stitch for the trunk; then complete each branch. Weave floss under existing stitches on the back as you stitch to prevent show-through of stitches on the front.

 

See common embroidery stitches here.



3. Refer to "M.I.Y. Covered Buttons," to cut out and assemble covered button.
