Introduction: Grip Buttons
I am an amateur sewer who can not stand those buttons that you have to sew a half billion times to get them to be tight! For that reason, I made grip buttons! You only have to sew them once and they stay put. If that sounds interesting to you, read on!!!

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: You Will Need....
A hot glue gun Button(s) Cardboard (not shown) That's it. Yep. I am sure.
Step 2: Lets Get Started!
Apply a small ball of glue on the "crossroads" of the button holes.
Step 3: Here Is Where You Use That Cardboard!!!
Place the glue side down on the cardboard. Quickly scrape the button off the cardboard. Make sure the layer of glue is not too thin, but not to thick. If it is too thick, it will be very hard to sew. Too thin and it will bust. NOTE: do this VERY quickly! If the glue sets, then you will have a cardboard backed button!
Step 4: Wait
Now, wait for it for dry. When it is dry, stitch it on your project! Saves a bunch of thread, doesn't it? Well, enjoy! Please comment and tell me what you think!
