You can use embroidery floss, silk ribbon, flower thread, or any kind of thread you might have. Pick your floss to match the green in your fabric if there is green and then match up the predominate color for the flower head. Next find a needle with a fairly large eye so 6 strands of floss will go through it.
In most cases, we use a single thread for sewing because a double thread kinks easier. But sometimes it is better to have it double, for example for putting buttons, because it will speed up your sewing. Some people use beeswax to smooth the thread so it slides through the fabric easier and doesn’t kink or knot.
Just use a twist-tie, like the kind that comes on a loaf of bread, as a makeshift needle and thread.
Insert the needle up from the underside of the jacket fabric and pull it through until the knot stops the thread. Stitch the toggle in place by taking four or five small stitches over the base of the toggle. End the stitching with the needle on the underside of the fabric and tie a knot. Clip off the excess thread.
Position your button in line with the button hole. Push your needle and thread through the underside of the fabric until it stops at the knot. Pass the needle through one button hole and then the other. Push your needle and thread back through the fabric until the button is pulled flat against the fabric.
There are three types of buttons:
- submit — Submits the current form data. (This is default.)
- reset — Resets data in the current form.
Do you need two threads to sew?
Once both your top thread and bobbin have been set up, you need to connect the two threads to be ready to sew. Using your needle position knob or button, lower the needle all the way down and back up again—when you do this, the needle will catch the bobbin thread and pull it back out in a loop.
