How To Make A Self Fabric Cover Button: 7 Fabric Cover Button Sizes February 21 2020

Easy Peasy! So Much Fun!

Cover Button Tips:

  • The size of the fabric circle for each Cover Button size should be approximately twice the diameter of your button blank. If you would like aย matching sized reusable plastic circle template, simply chooseย "Add Template"ย from the drop-down menu and the correct sized tool will be added to your order.
  • When the circle of fabric and Cover Button Cap are snugly situated in the clear base of the Cover Button tool, flip the tool over and double-check the positioning of your fabric. If it has a pattern, you will see a preview of how the button will form and can make adjustments to the fabric before you install the back.
  • You may want to add a dab ofย E6000 or comparable adhesiveย before installing theย Cover Button Back as a precaution to ensure a permanent hold.
  • Save your fingers: Tip #1ย -ย Use the backside of a permanent marker or comparable item on the smaller sized Cover Button Caps to press them into the clear base of the Cover Button tool.
  • Save your fingers: Tip #2ย - Take a flat piece of wood andย useย it to apply even downward pressure on the pinkย plunger of the Cover Button installation tool when installing the back.ย  Not so much pressure that you flatten the button, just until it pops into place.
  • To remove the Cover Button from the clear base once it has been formed, bend the mold slightly and push up from the bottom to pop out the button.

Wire Backs are used for fabric cover buttons in sewing, shoes, clothing, pony tail holders and much, much more.

Here are the 7 sizes we carry. From 1/2", which is about as small as your pinky nail, all the way up to 1 7/8" in diameter, about the size of the round side of a kiwi fruit. We carry them in both flat back (glueable) and wire back (sewable).

Assembling fabric Cover Buttons is fast and simple. In just seconds, you will have a button ready for your latest craft project.

See our pictorial below:

How to Make Fabric Cover Buttons:

Cover Buttons are easy to assemble:

  1. Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank.
  2. Put your fabric piece in the larger assembly tool piece (RIGHT SIDE DOWN). When you look into the tool you want to see the back of the fabric.
  3. Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.
  4. Press the cover button edges down into the tool.
  5. Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front. If the cover button will be subject to repeated tugging from the back, you may want to add a little e6000 adhesive before attaching the back.
  6. Take the smaller piece of the assembly tool and with the open side down place it on the button back.
  7. Press down. You may hear a pop when the last bit of the button back slips into place. If you take the tool out and the button is not completely secured, just put it back in and press down again.
  8. When you take the small assembly tool piece off, the fabric edges will be secured underneath the button back.
  9. Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece.
  10. Tada!
