How to Crochet a Firm Button

One of the most appealing things about crochet is that it can be used to make virtually anything one can imagine. Does your daughter's doll need a sleeping bag? Crochet can make that. Are you dying for a designer knock-off sweater? Crochet can do that do. But the really cool thing about crochet is that it can be used to make a lot of the notions needed for other craft projects, such as charms, ties, and, when done correctly, buttons.
