How to cover our buttons

- Categories : Sewing

Our buttons are extremely simple to cover, they just need a bit of precision when cutting the fabric to the right size. This is important because if the fabric is too large, it will not go in the back of the button and too small, it won’t grip on the small teeth.

How to cover Sajou button step 1

 1 - Trace a circle on the fabric you wish to use.
If you are embroidering the fabric, make sure you cut a piece of fabric
sufficiently large to use an embroidery hoop (our smallest model is 10cm).

2 - Once you have finished the embroidery, cut the fabric around the traced line.

 3 - Centre the fabric circle on the button dome, making sure the shank is horizontal
to the embroidery or fabric design, otherwise the pattern will be at an angle
when the button is sewn into place. Fold over or cut the excess fabric
and check that the pattern is in the right place.

 4 - Using your fingernail, push the fabric onto the small teeth.
Make sure there are no unsightly folds.

5 - Clip the flat back of the button into place and push hard:
a little “pop” will ensure the back is firmly in place.
