You thread the needle and tie a small knot at the opposite end.
When you have this done – hold the button exactly where you want it, start the threaded needle from the underneath of the button on the material. Basically continue this about six times then switch to the other two openings. (some buttons only have two openings if that is so, then go to next step)
After sewing each side of openings when needle is underneath the cloth, tie it off by doing two stitches just on the cloth itself. Cut any extra strings off and you’re done!
A little practice and if you get a stitch off here or there. No worries, it will go unnoticed and button will stay on just the same!
