BEST WAY TO SEW A BUTTON

BEST WAY TO SEW A BUTTON

I know there isn’t the right way for sewing a button, but for me this is definitely the best way I learn to sew a button, doesn’t require any finishing knots, and have a super strong hold.

My grandma, that was a taylor, used to do this way.

Make a simple knot or two at the end of the thread.

It is not really necessary, but I just do it to stop the thread without pay attention.

Simply sew the button to the fabric.

DO NOT SEW THE BUTTON TOO TIGH TO THE FABRIC: leave a small space between the button and the fabric, so the buttonhole will eventually be able to fit there.

Task 7: KEEP SEWING
