  1. Read instructions through before beginning.
  2. If you don’t have a crochet hook small enough to pull the yarn through the button you can sew it on with the beginning tail and a tapestry needle.
  3. It’s a little tricky working around the button, if you need to make an extra stitch that’s okay. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
  4. Yarn in the photo is Red Heart Super Saver in Tea Leaf.
  5. I bought the ladybugs buttons at JoAnn and Michaels.
