Here is a quick tutorial on making Buttonhole Flowers. First you will need to mark an outer and an inner circle on your fabric. Bring your needle up at 1 on the inside circle then down at 2 and up at 3 with the thread beneath your needle. Work in this way all around your circle spacing as required. You can radiate the stitches regularly or irregularly. Try working in different thread thicknesses and also moving the inner circle off centre for a less formal effect.
