This is a really quick and effective way of making cute badges from buttons and bits and pieces.
Choose 3 Buttons that step down in size. Then tie some cotton onto the first button, and sew through the 3 together to make them into a stack.
Sew through the buttons a few times to make them tight. Then have a look in your bits and pieces box for something to decorate them with. Sew this onto the top/front of the stack, deciding how tight to pull it for the desired look.
The tie off the cotton neatly at the back and stick a brooch pin on the back.
