Thanks so much for sharing this idea! I made some covered buttons for this vest I made--


here is the link-- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=293660.0

I used regular buttons with holes since I didn't have any shank ones.

wonderful tute, excellent idea! i don't know if anyone has mentioned using fray-stop or fray-check on the raw edge of the fabric to prevent fraying but it really works. in a pinch white glue mixed w a bit of water works alright too though i wouldn't put those buttons through the wash.

another idea would be to cover the back of the buttons with a circle of felt either glued or stitched on. a bit more labour intensive but if you're going to the trouble of making covered buttons in the first place why the heck not?!
