Show me how: to sew a button
Favorite shirt lose a button? Sew it back on. Local crafter Elizabeth Galvez said sewing buttons requires just a couple of sewing supplies and a few simple steps to get those annoying little fasteners back in place.
You will need a button, a medium/small needle, thread, scissors, and a marker.
Step 1: Loop the thread into the eye of the needle.
Step 2: Tie a knot at the end of the thread.
Step 3: Mark a small spot on the shirt where the button will be sewn and place the button in position.
Step 4: Starting from the back of the shirt, push the needle through the first buttonhole.
Step 5: In a diagonal direction, push the needle back through another hole. Repeat with the remaining holes in the button until the button is sewn onto the shirt tightly.
Step 6: Cut the thread at the back of the button and tie two knots to secure the thread into place.
Step 7: Cut off the excess thread.
