    Default Tuffet Buttons

    I made a tuffet and used the 2 1/2 inch button the pattern calls for. It didn't work. The inner circle of the strips of fabric is now stretching out from under the button! Any idea on why this is happening, or how to fix it if I replace the fabric strips for the tuffet cover? I looked and can't find any 3 inch cover buttons.

    can you find a button that large or is it that when you do they are not covered.

    I'd like a covered button, to match the fabric in the tuffet. When I looked for regular buttons though, I couldn't find any larger than 21/2 inches.

    Check out this tutorial - making covered buttons without a kit. You'll need to scroll down the page to get to the covered button info. Looks easy and hopefully will solve the problem. https://makeit-loveit.com/sewing-tip...-without-a-kit
