1. Follow the covered button kit packaging instructions to create a template. Or use an acrylic covered button template, such as the one we used from Dritz (dritz.com). Templates are designed for common button sizes.

2. Cut out traced circle on outer line.

3. Center fabric, wrong side up, over mold. Hold fabric firmly, and press button shell into mold with smooth, curved edge facedown.

4. Tuck raw edges of fabric into button shell. Place button back over tucked fabric with button shank facing up.

5. Press down firmly with pusher to snap button into place.

6. Remove covered button from mold.
