Here are the simple tools we'll need for our button repair.

Needle and thread - The Evergreen Art Supply sewing kit includes the right needle for you. Chose thread that has the closest color of your button. We included 18 colored thread rolls with this kit! More than you'll ever need, plus 2 white and 2 blacks.













Button - If you've kept the button, great. If not, find the closest color and size you can find. The kit has several buttons included that you can use.














Small scissors - We included stainless steel scissors for nipping those threads efficiently.





Note: Most clothes and shirts usually have extra buttons sewn on the tab, so make sure to check for those if cant find your missing button.

Here are the 4 Simple Steps to sew back your button.

Evergreen Art Supply - Sewing Kit; How to make a thread knot.

    • Start by threading your needle with about 24 inches of thread that is doubled over. That's about12 inches of thread that we can work with. Loop the thread a few times around your forefinger and tug the end to create a bundled knot.

      • X marks the spot in anchoring your button. The X anchor makes it more sturdy than just simply attaching the button straight on without an anchor.
        • Once you've completed around 5 loops through the hole, remove the spacer and wrap your thread around the threads under the button to make a shank.

          • Tighten it all down by knotting the several loops on your anchor and cut the excess string with your stainless scissors.

          And there you go, your rouge button is back! :)
