Sheet of Monogrammed Letters (used for this tutorial)

Step-by-Step Instructions

Picture to the left shows the front side of the monogrammed fabric. Flip your monogrammed fabric over, you will be working on the back side.

 

Use the pattern given to you with your button cover kit, this is the size that you will cut the fabric to. If you can’t find the pattern or it didn’t come with one, double the diameter of your button for your fabric pattern.

I folded mine in half, and then half again, this will give the center of the pattern. I traced over the folded lines so that you could see the center lines. Fold the circle in half, and line up the center point (where the traced line and the fold connect) with the center of your letter.

 

Unfold your circle pattern, making sure not to move it. Hold it in place and ...t

 

...trace around it.

 

Place your button in the center of your circle (this should also be centered around your letter).

 
Trace around the button.

Cut out your circle (fabric and interfacing) along the outside circle lines.

 

Pull apart the interfacing and the fabric.

 

Now cut only the interfacing (the white backside “fabric”) along the smaller inner circle lines. Be careful, making sure to NOT cut your front fabric, make sure to separate the fabrics while cutting. (Can you tell I’ve cut my front fabric before).

 

Prepare your button by using a glue stick. Sparingly spread glue around the top of your button.

 

Now place your fabric on the button, centering it. You can move it around, make sure that you look at it from the front, pulling the sides tight to check and see if you need to maneuver the fabric any.

 

Now you can place your button into the white rubber tool that came with your button cover kit.

 

Try to make sure that your fabric stays in place, so that your letter will be centered.

 

At this point turn it over, and you can see thru the bottom of the white rubber tool and to make sure that your letter is centered properly. If needed reposition your letter so it is centered.

 

Now use the blue piece that came with your cover button kit, make sure that all of the fabric edges are aiming inward, place blue piece on top to flatten fabric edges against the back of your button...

...so that you don’t have raw edges sticking out of the sides.

 

Now place the back on the button. Make sure that the shank side is up, or if you have buttons that don’t have shanks (or you’ve removed the shanks) the side that should be up towards you will have a ridge on the outside edge.

 

The easiest way to pop this into place is to use the blue piece again and apply slight pressure.

 

 The back should fit snuggly and snap into place.

 

You are now done. Just peel back the white rubber tool and pop out your one-of-a-kind button.

 

Use them to personalize all of your projects. They are great additions to accessories and outfits. Mix and match colors, fabrics, size and have fun!

 

Put your button on a clippie...
...or a hair bow. There are hundreds of options!
