Here's how to knot the thread at the end of each button row: First, thread through the two remaining button holes on the last button twice, ending with the needle on the back side of the work. Turn the work over and thread the needle through one of the stitches on the back side of the button.
||Pull the thread until there is just a small loop of thread left (as shown). Insert the needle through this loop twice, and, holding the thread close to the stitch with your finger, pull the thread taut. Snip the thread ends.
Once you've sewn together all of the button rows, you're finished!
||Your coaster is now ready to serve! Remember that this is best suited for cool drinks because anything hot might melt the buttons.
