How To Cover Buttons with Fabric

Covering half ball buttons with the fabric of your choice is really simple. The Dritz buttons come in a package like this, which has a tempate for cutting your fabric on the back. Start by cutting out the template. Then place it on your fabric and trace halfway around it, then flip it around to complete the circle. Then cut out the circle. The buttons come in two pieces which snap together to hold the fabric. The buttons have little teeth on the inside, so wrap your fabric around the buttons and hook it onto the teeth. Start on the opposite sides and work your way around like this. Then take the back of the button, with the ridge facing down, and snap it onto the button. 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.
