    thankyou for sharing such a lovely and easy way to accessorize a garment.I can't wait to make these for my outfit.great work!

    A great idea, but much easier and less fiddly to make a felt bead and sew the beads onto that!

    I had difficulty controlling the bead,--[clumsy]--,so I used a small self-covered button, covered with same fabric.
    Thanks!

    Thank you for telling us how to bead a button. I will be using this technique as I really enjoy unique way to dress up a garment.

    Thank you for the memory! My mom used to make beaded buttons years ago (who am I kidding, decades ago) by making a tube (1/4" diameter) out of the garment fabric, winding that into a button shape and beading with seed beads... I still have a few that were made our of a fabulous blue silk shantung - with the beads, these buttons look like they came from the sea...
