Tutorial: Perfect button placement with double-sided tape

I have button phobia.  I don’t fear making the buttonhole itself, but the buttonplacement can make me a crazy woman.  No sooner do I have the button perfectly stitched and well-secured than I stand back and notice that the button has moved while I was sewing it down.  Does this happen to you?  Joan from Lazy Girl Designs shares a tutorial on her blog showing her method for placing and stitching buttons so they end up exactly where you want them.  She uses double-sided tape to stick the button down, and then stitches it in by machine.  I will definitely be giving this a try the next time I sew down some buttons.  Read her tips at Lazy Girl Blog.
