Although “bursting our buttons” doesn’t happen too often, it still does happen. And when it is does, and we lost the little extra one(s) that came with the clothing when we bought it… well we might as well just get rid of the whole outfit! Here’s a tip on how to never lose a button.
- When you come home from the store and take the tags of your clothing, also immediately remove the button(s) from the little bag.
- Grab some thread and a needle (doesn’t need to be a matching color).
- Sew the button to an inside seam allowance of the clothing piece.
And voilà! You’ll be ready when you need that extra button the most. Now all you have to do is carry around a portable sewing kit and you’re invincible! Virginia
