Why to sew buttons? This type of big question arises normally. Buttons are getting removed because of poor sewing and washing. Not guided , children's also play around by pulling or biting the buttons makes it fall. When you want to move for a vacation, at the moment you realise some buttons are missing , you cannot run to the tailor wasting time and money. Sew on buttons are simple to do with the shortest time , provided we know how to sewing on a button. I try to brief you about sewing buttons and patterns in this hub.

Items needed for sewing buttons

1. needle (small one)

2. spool thread 

3. scissor

First step take needle to insert the thread into hole . Handle the needle carefully to avoid any accident with the sharp edge. 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. Always try to join shirt to button. Because the fabric is the base for holding the buttons. If it is two hole button go on sewing inserting and taking out the needle with thread atleast five time. If it is four holes buttons crosswise sewing is advisable to get more grip , and making not to coming out buttons from fabrics.
