materials

  • Upholstery needle and thread

  • Button snap set

  • Silk flower

steps

  1. Use an upholstery needle and thimble to stitch half of a snap to the collar.

  2. Stitch the other half of the snap to the base of a fabric flower. Those with a flat fabric bottom are easiest to work with. If your flower has a plastic base, just sew through a petal or two as close as possible to the base.
