Re-do it:
  1. 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.
  2. Replicate the pattern on your pillow by sketching it with tailor’s chalk.
  3. Attach the buttons on the pillow using super glue.
  4. Let the super glue dry and make sure all the buttons are securely in place.
