If not, you can remove the shank with pliers, slip a rubberband through the shank and replace the shank. Then, you have the fabric covered button on the rubberband.
I made a TON of these with different fabrics for my girls, and I even use them. I've received a lot of compliments on them.
How do you replace the shank securely? I have wanted to do something like this, but am afraid that the shank would not stay, and my button would fall off.
