If you're one of those people, don't feel bad. I was lucky enough to have a mom who knew how, and she taught me. And today, I'm going to teach you!
Now, I'm definitely not a button-sewing expert (by any means!) but this is my little tutorial on how to sew on a button. It may not produce the most glamorous button stitch-work out there, but it gets the job done- Little Wife style.
You're going to need a needle and thread. I like to use shorter needles for sewing buttons.
Then I pull the knot to the end of the string. This doesn't have to be pretty. No one will see it! The two strings should now be tied together. I like to use this double-thread method because I think it holds more strongly- and then one stitch produces twice the thread hold!

Ta da! Button sewn.
Look at you, you frontiersman! You pioneer woman! You independent, button-sewing tough guy.
And that's how you sew on a button!
