Now that I have become somewhat addicted to Converse, I have been looking for new ways to alter them. So with my latest pair I had the bright idea of adding buttons. I had no idea if it would work, but here is a tutorial for what I eventually came up with. note: I haven’t worn these out, so I cannot say how well they are going to hold up, but I don’t see why they wouldn’t.
Here is the step by step process I used.
One: Gather your supplies:
A heavy thread(I used a crochet cotton-you could probably also use a smallish type wire), needle, scissors
Two year olds who like to throw your buttons up in the air like confetti are completely optional. If asked, I would recommend that you leave this supply off the list.
