How To Sew On Wholesale Buttons

If a button has fallen off your favourite item of clothing and has gone missing, you may find that you need to buy wholesale buttons so that you can fix your garment. If you do not have a spare button for your garment, then it is often better to change all of the buttons, so that they all match, rather than just buying one which does not quite match. The good thing about buying wholesale buttons is that they are great value, and they will sometimes work out as being less expensive than it would have been for you to buy a single button by itself!
Once you have bought your button, it is very easy to change all of the buttons on a garment. Carefully remove all of the remaining buttons, either by unpicking the thread, or by carefully cutting the threads and pulling the button away. If you cut them away, make sure that you still unpick the remaining threads afterwards, or it could look messy. When this has been completed, you will be ready to begin sewing your new ones on.
Choose a thread which is a similar colour to that which was securing the buttons which you have removed. You will also need to get a pair of sewing scissors and an appropriately sized needle. The needle should be thin and should pass through the eyes of the wholesale button with ease. Shank buttons (with a protrusion at the back) often have larger holes than sew through buttons have.
When you are ready to begin working, hold the button in position, so that you know that you are about to start sewing the button into the correct position. Put a few stitches into the fabric at this site to act as an anchor for the button to help to hold it securely in position. If you are using a sew through style of button, you should then begin to go through the hole of the button. For security, make sure that you go through each of the holes about 3 or 4 times, but do not pull the threads too tightly because the button needs to be able to move a little when you put it through the corresponding button hole. Once you have done this, you should encircle the threads between the button and the fabric a few times with the end of your thread, in order to help to secure the it into place.
If you are using a shank button, you will need to follow a slightly different method. After you have put the anchor stitches into place, you should run the thread through the shank hole. Once you have done this a few times, you can then secure the button in place by winding the thread around the shank.
Whichever of the above methods that you use for sewing on wholesale buttons, you should finish off the button securely by making a few small stitches, and then tying a knot.
