Beaded buttons

Had a quick go at beading buttons and found it much harder than it looked. The first one I did by by drawing the circle on the material, beading it then covering the button. I was a bit slap dash with the drawing and as you can see it's not very round.

With the second one I covered the button first then sewed on the beads. It's come out better but it nearly destroyed my fingers trying to get the needle in and out at awkward angles. I really needed a curved needle but I didn't have one and clearly, I couldn't wait two days - it had to be done right NOW.

Might try again at a later stage.
