Tutorial – Interchangeable button on flower

I love, love, love making gorgeous little hats for my little girl, but I wanted to find a way to match them with her outfits without having to make a billion different hats. The easiest way I thought to do this is to have detachable crochet flowers that a permanent button on the hat can attach to.
