I guess everyone knows the problem... you can't find good matching buttons. Or you don't like the feel of the buttons (that's my problem). The solution is easy: make fabric covered buttons. I found a tutorial on them in a Burda sewing book, tried it, liked it and decided to share this technique in a very detailled photo tutorial.
