Felt
To felt, throw it in the washing machine with a pair of jeans or old canvas tennis shoes. Do not use towels as the lint can embed in the project. If you have a zippered lingerie bag, place it in the bag. Use hot water and a small amount of detergent. Check after 3 minutes and continue the wash cycle if needed, checking every 2 minutes. If buttonhole begins to felt together, pull apart. You can also cut a buttonhole after it's felted (it won't unravel at that point). When felted, rinse in cool water, shape, and dry flat.

Sew on button.
