Buttons are a great way to add some last-minute flair to any sewing piece or adorn an old sweater with some extra pizazz. These DIY Fabric Covered Buttons are easy to make and super cute. This tutorial is a great trick to have in your back pocket. You can even use old fabric scraps to make these, saving you plenty of shopping time and money. Go with some funky and bright fabric to make your mark or use a subtler color for a classier vibe.

Fabric covered buttons are an elegant finish to any garment. Although all store bought packages of covered button kits have tiny printed instructions on how to cover the plain metal, it is nice to actually see a colorful tutorial, step by step, on how to do so. The covered button pictorial is easy to follow.
