Tutorial: Woven Button Coasters
Many crafters are creating new and unique ways to use vintage and collected buttons for both home decor and fun craft projects. I instantly thought of my mom when I saw these coasters. She has an enviable button stash ripe with various colors and sizes just waiting to be woven into useful coasters.
CraftStylish contributer Linda Permann, of Linda Made, created these gorgeous and simple woven button coasters. Linda used 81 4-hole buttons that were 3/8 inch size. She used three colors of embroidery floss to make a simple design.
- Weave 9 buttons together in a row as shown in the above picture.
- Repeat step 1 for all nine rows.
- Weave the rows together.
