Recently, a button fell off of one of hubbys pajama pants. With only one button holding the opening closed, I knew we had to fix it.
What You Need:
- Pins (optional - i used them to hold the button in place until I stitched it)
- Pants and Button
What to do:
First thread your needle and tie a strong knot at the end. Line up your button with the button hole on the pants. I pinned my button in the right spot so it wouldn't slip and I would sew it in the wrong place and go through all the work for nothing.
Next I made a stitch in the pants behind where the button was going to be placed before starting to sew the button on. I begin sewing the button by going around each section on the button four times to make sure it was very secure. After finishing going around the button, I did a stitch in the fabric behind the button again and tied the thread off a bunch of times to make sure it was as secure as possible.
