How to Sew on a Button by Hand
In this step-by-step tutorial you will learn how to sew on by hand the flat button having two or four holes.
For all sizes of buttons I recommend make the "leg".
This is particularly important condition for big sizes buttons that are on outer clothing from leather etc.
Let's sew on the big size button having two holes. This button has a strong leg made of threads.
The button without a leg can be a cause rupture of fabric where button is sewn and buttonhole breaking.
Note: You can input between button and the fabric the rod pen or match. This trick makes tightening of the stitches easier.
Depending on the thickness of the thread, fabric and the size a button you need make a certain amount of stitches. In any case you need make not less than 4 in each pair of holes buttons.
It's time to pull out a rod pen and wrap the leg around.
Depending on size button and the height a leg you need make 5-10 tight turns.
Now you need to securely attach the end of the thread.
Plug the needle tip at the base of leg a button.
Pull the needle with thread into the resulting loop. Tighten the thread. You can repeat this action again.
Now you need to remove a thread on the wrong side a fabric.
Note: Do not rush to trim the thread.
You can make another knot or just cut with scissors thread leaving 1 cm.
I hope these easy steps will help you sew on the button correctly.
