Instructions

Step 1: Cut out the template and fabric

The buttons come in a package that has a template for cutting your fabric on the back.

Start by cutting out the template.

Place it on your fabric and trace halfway around it, then flip it around to complete the circle.

Cut out the circle.

Step 2: Wrap the fabric

The buttons come in two pieces, which snap together to hold the fabric.

Place the front of the button in the center of the fabric.

The buttons have little teeth on the inside, so wrap your fabric around the button and hook it on the teeth. Start on the opposite sides and work your way around.

For heavier fabrics you may need to use something like a spool of thread to help push it down.

For very lightweight and sheer fabrics, you may want to use two layers of fabric. Or you can use a solid fabric or interfacing under the sheer fabric, if you don’t want to see the shine of the metal through

Now your custom buttons are ready for your project.
