Refer to photo for placement. Removing the laces will make for easier stitching. Stitch buttons next to eyelet, so button covers it, but allowing for stringing the shoelace.
1. Starting at top eyelet, stitch a stack of one medium and one small button. Knot under buttons or inside shoe.
2. Repeat at each eyelet, stitching either a stack of two buttons or a single button.
3. Stitch a stack of two buttons on heel of each shoe.
