We all love fabric self-covered buttons, but let’s be honest – the process is quite fiddly if you do it the old school way with thread, needles, and gathers. That’s where this universal tool for cover buttons comes in handy. It’s a nifty tool that makes the process a lot easier and quicker.
Fits buttons of the sizes 11mm, 15mm, 19mm, 22mm and 29mm.
Works for both plastic and metal buttons (it’s sometimes labeled for metal only, but it works for both types).
No need for a hammer, thread or needle.
The socket is made of a rubber-like material and the lid/press tool of plastic.
How to use this for making self cover buttons
Step 1 Cut a fabric circle just like you normally would and place it in the socket
Step 2 Place the shell of the cover buttons in the socket
Step 3 Push the button down into the socket.
Step 4 Press down any wayward fabric edges.
Put the button back piece on top and push it down gently.
Place the lid on the button and press firmly.
Flip the button maker over and press out the button.
