Sewing Buttons On

Posted on



Buttons, whilst being functional, are also a decorative feature of a garment or soft furnishing.

We quickly sew them on only making sure the thread is secure and the button won't fall off.


Whilst there's only one way to sew on a two hole button, here's four ways to sew on four hole buttons.






Buttons one and four are traditional methods and two and three add interest when sewing plain buttons.

You can also add interest by using a contrast thread.

Which one do you prefer?

I like button 3 and the little square shape the thread produces, I think its a nice contrast to the circular button.
