Snap buttons are found on many different types of clothing including pants, shorts, blouses, or jackets. They make buttoning your clothes super easy because all you have to do is snap the two sides of the button together. Buttoning your snap button is not as easy though when it is loose or falling of off your clothing. Luckily, it is super easy to fix a loose snap button by yourself!
Before you can fix your button you need to gather all of the supplies that you will need. In order to fix your snap button you will need a pencil, straight pin, sewing needle, thread, and sewing scissors. Once you have gathered all of your materials you can begin fixing your button.
Fixing Your Button
The first step in fixing your snap button is to pull out all of the loose threads surrounding the button. The snap button will no longer be attached on either side of the fabric after you remove the thread. Use your pencil and lightly draw on your garment a mark where the snap button was so you sew it on in the right place.
Next, you need to thread your needle. To do this double thread the needle and tie a knot at the end. The top snap button needs to be connected to a pin, so put a small pin in the spot where you made a mark for the top snap button and put the snap button on the pin. You will then use your needle and thread to sew between the holes around the top snap button. Once you have sewn thread around the entire button, tie a little knot near the button and then pull the needle through to the other side of the fabric to tie a larger knot. This larger knot will be hidden and will keep the button in place.
Once you have finished the top side of the snap button, repeat the entire process on the bottom side. It is important to make sure that the top and bottom buttons are perfectly aligned so they snap together when you are wearing your garment.
