So, I legit can’t help wanting to spread this joy of sewing to everyone that I know. And more often than not, I’m told that he/she doesn’t even know how to sew a button. And as the general barrier-remover than I am, I decided to make a YouTube tutorial on how to sew a button by hand.

Here are some supplies that I recommend:
