Default Fabric buttons?

Does anyone know how to make the fabric covered buttons? I have tried and mine look really crappy. So. I threw them out. Thanks for your help ahead of time.

are you buying the buttons made specifically for that? they are 2 pieces to one button. i have no problem with mine unless i want a particular part of the fabric showing and just have to eyeball it pretty well.

I haven't done these yet...lol. But where do you get the button parts from? I'm sure places like Joanns are pretty expensive. TIA!

Did your buttons come with a template circle? If not, try making a template circle at least 1/2 inch larger than your button size. Trace onto the back of your fabric and cut out. I use a padding/liner for mine that i cut just slightly larger than the button itself. Now, if you are trying to center the button, dab a little bit of fabric-tack to the middle and attach to liner. Let that dry a minute then into the tool goes your fabric, button, then squish all the fabric down and pop in the back of button. HTH~this is how I do mine and they seem great to me!
