DIY Embroidered Button Project - Botanical Button Panel

       

Embroider simple details onto this linen sampler which makes up 9 buttons measuring 38mm. Put your own unique touch to the design, with minimalist or extensive details. You can stitch to cover the white areas on the images, or simply stitch along the outlines.  I used single and double strands of embroidery floss and small seed beads.   It is entirely up to you when it comes to embroidering the details, choosing colours, stitches and which details you would like to embroider making it unique to you.

For the stitching I used a single or double strand of embroidery floss depending on the thickness of the line I wanted to achieve, and I also used a single strand of floss to stitch the seed beads in place.

Below are the instructions for making up the buttons.

This fabric Botanical Button Sampler is printed on linen which gives a beautiful texture to the buttons.
