Default Covered Buttons - How to Center Fabric Design?

I have been experimenting with a couple of the larger size buttons and fabric prints I have. I am having the worst time getting the design centered on the button. I have read a few tip threads here, and even tried double stick tape this last time. Still no luck =(

Does anyone having any tips/tricks to share? I would appreciate it!

With the rate I'm 'ruining' buttons, guess I may have to stick to just patterns that don't need to be centered. Bummer, as all the centered design ones are so cute! (Two failed attempts are pictured, size 60 and size 45)

When I make them, I look through the tool to see if it is centered, I pull on the fabric to adjust it sometime. you know you can take them apart if you mess them up. Although you will lose your fabric, you can still reuse the button. I just cut a slit across the top part of the fabric and pull to take the back off. HTH

I use spray adhesive. Just spray some on the front of your button and place the fabric where you want it, let it dry then use the tool to finish the button off.

Using a glue stick may help keep the fabric in place too.

I have used the spray adhesive and it worked well for me. You can reposition it several times before it dries too. When I had to take my buttons apart I just used a eye glass screw driver to pop the back off the button and it has worked every time. It doesnt bend it at all and you only have to apply very little pressure.
