How to Sew a Button by Hand
In this step-by-step tutorial you learn how to sew on the flat button having two or four holes by hand.
The small or big buttons are always better to sew on the fabric of garments "on the leg".
This is particularly important condition for outer clothing from leather etc., having the holes with big size buttons.
Try to do together with me trial sewing the big size button having two holes. This button will be having 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: If between button and the fabric put a pencil makes tightening of the stitches will be easier.
Depending on the thickness of the thread, fabric and the size of the buttons make a few stitches but not less than 4 in each pair of holes buttons.
It's time to pull out a pencil and wrap these long stitches around.
Depending on the height a leg button make 5-10 tight turns.
Now you need to securely attach the end of the thread.
Plug the needle tip at the base legs 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 help you correct sew on a button.
