Place embroidery stabiliser under the fabric remnants and embroider with your machine’s built-in embroidery stitches. Depending on the stitch, you may need
to loosen the thread tension slightly. Tear away the embroidery stabiliser and cover the buttons according to the button-manufacturer’s instructions.
Cut 4 3.5-m-long cords in half to yield 8 1.75 m cords. Hang the loop thus created e.g. on a door handle. Thread all buttons onto one cord. Plait a 4-strand plait with 2 cords at a time, braiding in the buttons as you work. Screw nuts can also be threaded on and braided in for effect in places. With the 4-strand plait, an outermost cord is always braided over 1 cord and the opposite, second-outermost cord is braided over 2 cords. 30 cm before the end of the cord, knot all cords together and pull a few screw nuts through the individual cords. Knot off all ends and cut off to desired length.
