Using the Cover Button Templates by Dritz, trace the size attributed to whichever button size you want for your garment. I used the 3/4" (inch) size, which is the Dritz size 30.
You also have a cardboard template on the back of your Cover Button Kit, but I found that it was easier to use the plastic templates, especially if you plan to make a lot of covered buttons.
I used the Mark-B-Gone Marking pen because it had a fine point, allowing for an accurate size, and it washes off easily with a damp cloth.
