How to Sew on Buttons with a Sewing Machine

sew on buttons with sewing machine

I'm such a lazy sewer that I feel almost embarrassed to share what I did last week.  I had to sew on a couple of buttons and rather than get out a needle and thread and hand-sew them, I actually took the time to look at my machine manual and learn how to sew them by machine instead.

In the end, I'm glad I did.  They took almost no time at all, looked much neater than I could have sewn by hand, and are probably much stronger too.

I can tell you this is easy because I did this video of me sewing on the very first ever machine sewn button.  Both the first one and the second one came out perfectly!  I was so worried I was either going to break the needle or break the button, but I was worried over nothing – it's so sew easy!
