2 Fat quarters
2 Large buttons
Corresponding thread and needle
Step 1: Place your fat quarters right sides together.
Sew around the edge with a 1/4" seam. Leave about a 4-5" wide opening on one side.
Take your needle and thread and poke down through the button and the bed to the other side.
Take your other button and place it where your needle came up through the other side. Continue to run the needle from one side to the other going through the buttons until you've been back and forth several times.
To tie off your needle, pull up the button like so and thread the needle through the other hole but not through the bed. Now wrap the thread around the underneath of the button several times and tie off the knot. Now your buttons are more secure and your knot is hidden.
Gross old bed.
Nice new bed.
