We’ve got it covered!

We know that sometimes it’s tricky to find the perfect matching buttons for your finished make – especially if it’s something super special like the 1960’s Coat. The best option in this case is to make covered buttons that you know will go perfectly with your new make!

We’ve added a handy little tutorial to guide you through the process, and if you’re already a Stitch School member, you will find the course already linked in your account!

You will learn all about…

how to make wool covered buttons
how to handle bulky fabrics
