Sewing on a button

As part of my new project to learn how to sew, more or less, I have now learnt how to sew on a button.  I used this cut out from Martha Stewart, which my Mum included in the sewing box she pulled together for me.

How to sew on a button the Martha Stewart way – not sure that you can read this

If you can’t read it, a summary of what it says is here.  Anyway, the button I sewed back on is the little heart shaped one you can see on my daughter’s dress.  The others were sewn on with pink thread but I used white (because no one has pink thread).  The back is a bit shonky – there is a random loop in the knot that shouldn’t be there – but I hope that the button will hold.
