Button, Button

I use less time and effort when I sew on buttons by doubling the thread before I put it through the needle’s eye. I then bring the double strand through the eye, make it even with its other end, and knot it. Sewing with four threads at one time saves me a lot of poking in and out of button holes.—Regina M. Schulte, Tonisvorst, West Germany
