    How do you sew a button back on to denim pants?

    I followed the question about sewing buttons and cufflinks on, and read the hub … ks-back-on ; however it did not address my problem. Every time I try to sew the button back on my needle breaks. What am I doing wrong?

    Try getting a thicker needle... either one used for knitting or embroidery.  Denim is thick and hard to get through especially at the waist band where the fabric is more than one layer.
