For this Badge Bit, you will sew on a button! Preferably, you'll be mending an article of clothing, but that's not essential.
To document your completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
- your button, thread, and the cloth you will sew the button onto
- the process of sewing on the button
- your button sewn on, both from the front and the back
When sewing on a button, tieing a few knots during the process keeps your button on your garment. If a thread breaks, the button doesn't fall off. Going through the button more times than is shown in these videos is also recommended.
Included is a video of my sewing machine using the buttonhole feature to sew the button. I set it to the end of the buttonhol stitch, which makes the needle go back and forth without moving the feed dogs to advance the fabric. I hand turn the machine to slowly line up the button with the needle's movement. Not every button works with this method but it did in this case.
After I cut the strings from the machine, I just tie a few knots before cutting them off.
