Once you insert the thread , tie the end of two line thread according to your requirement. Place the button on the shirt exactly the position of button hole other side. Make sure it should not be pull the other part of shirt. Once you are sure that the placing of button is o.k., then you insert the threaded needle down from the shirt.
