Step 5: Get ready to add your buttons
Get your bamboo skewers or chopsticks, your long needle, thread, your buttons and pliers.
In the second photo, you can see where I marked with a dried up old Sharpie, then later, for your benefit, an orange crayon, the holes I pre-drilled for the buttons. I don't know how big the drill bit was, but you don't want to be fishing around, blindly trying to pass the needle back through the tiniest of holes, so be sure the drill bit is around 1/16th to 1/8th". (I hope that makes sense & is not totally off the wall).
