- Map out the pattern you want on a piece of paper. If you don’t have a pattern in mind, just go freestyle or use simple shapes for the design.
- Replicate the pattern on your pillow by sketching it with tailor’s chalk.
- Attach the buttons on the pillow using super glue.
- Let the super glue dry and make sure all the buttons are securely in place.
