Got me a second hand cotton shirt that started losing its buttons one by one.
So I did not just sew one button yesterday. This shirt was in need of a complete re-buttoning operation :-)

Thanks for the tip for making those extra knots!

While doing another BB to patch an elbow tear in this shirt I noticed the cuff button was broken.  Seems like a good opportunity to do this BB!  I've designated one poor, worn, torn, and tired shirt of mine as "salvage" to be used for patch fabric and now it seems buttons.
