<<Layers are in this order - bottom layer is
cardboard, then fabric square, the felt shape, the button. With crochet

thread, thread the needle and take one stitch - down through the button
hole
and then up - leaving a tail through both button holes to tie in knot or

bow.>>

Do you find that they have trouble going through all those layers? My
HS kids had trouble sewing through 4 layers of copy paper. I can't
imagine my little ones pressing hard enough with those dull needles to
go through the cardboard. Maybe I'm not getting it?
