Get All Your Buttons in a Row
Ever notice how those squirrelly buttons never line up, no matter how hard you try?!
Here’s a trick: place them face up on a flat surface. Lay transparent tape over the button faces, connecting them in the desired placement. Flip the lot over and put double-sided tape over the bottoms. Slap the buttons in place on the garment, sew right through the tape, and then remove the tape.
