Chinese Knot Button: How to Tie it

The Chinese Knot button is a great accent, as you can see on this pink silk dress. Making your own is fun. This button is also neat to use on hand bags, totes and other accessories where you may want an unusual button or accent.
I found this great little sketch in a vintage magazine and wanted to share it with you. It can be made using cord in matching or accent colors. As you can see, it is awesomely easy to weave the knot. When you have sewn off the ends, it's ready to add to your jacket, blouse or tote bag! If you are a skilled sewist, cloth covered cords also make up into gorgeous buttons. You can find this pretty shell pink silk shirt dress from the 1960's at my Etsy shop: PintuckStyle.
