Help please! Does anyone have any experience of using these?
I have bought a set of metal "Hemline" brand buttons, and I want to cover them in a heavy polyester satin. I have followed the destructions but have now destroyed three of these buttons.
The fabric is supposed to be cut to size and then hooked over the prongs inside the body of the button.
It is just not working with this fabric. I think it might be because it is a slippery satin but the prongs do not seem to be able to "grab" the fabric and stop it slipping.
Has anyone tried the plastic ones? or does anyone have any tips on how to do this?
One of those moments when I wish my mum was still here to ask.
