Default Re: Fabric and Felt Flower cut outs...QUESTION about the button center!!

I actually double sided my fabric, using double stick fusible webbing. It makes the fabric stiffer. I also put Fray Block on the edges of the flowers, to ensure they don't fray. HTH!!
I think your idea of how to attach the button makes sense....I ended up gluing a strip of ribbon doubled up to the back and sewing through it for a test sample. I definitely am open to more ideas..thanks!
