I always sew them to the middle of a piece of 3/8 wide ribbon and then use it like a normal bow center. My surgeon's knot makes pulling buttons off much harder than with just plain glue IMO.

HTH!

I sew my buttons on as well. I like the look of the thread on the button once you add it to the bow. It looks more homemade!

Good luck!

Yes, and it makes it look finished, as well. Otherwise it's kinda like, oops! Forgot something!

ya know I always seem to come here right after doing something and read a much much easier way of doing it....I just did four korkers with a button in the middle and I like the sewn look so here I am trying to sew it threw the whole thick middle...what a clever Idea to sew it to a peice and then add it!!! Thank you.
