How to Sew on a Button

Sewing on buttons is easy.

Buttons with 2 holes are sewn parallel.

Buttons with two holes can only be sewn one way.

Buttons with four holes are sewn either parallel or crisscross.

Buttons with four holes can be sewn crisscross or parallel.

Place the button where you would like it to go. Knot the end of your thread.
Hold the button in place. From under your garment bring up your needle through all layers of fabric and interfacing then through a hole in the button.
Because you brought the needle up from under your fabric, the knot will be on the wrong side of your garment.
Bring the needle down the other hole in the button. Repeat this process until your button is nice and snug.
Repeat this process several times until your button is nice and snug.
If your button has a shank attached to it you can put your needle to the wrong side of the garment and tie a knot and you are done. 

If your button does not have a shank you will need to make one. 

Bring your needle up to the pretty side of the fabric but do not go through a button hole.  Stay as close to the button as possible.  Notice the needle on the right hand side of the photo.

Add a shank by winding at the base of the button round and round.
Continue winding until you have a shank the same size as the button width.
After finish winding, bring the needle down to the wrong side of the garment and knot it.

Button, Button, Who's Got the Button?
