Whether you lost a button from your favorite coat or you are sewing a new blouse from your favorite BurdaStyle pattern, sewing on a button is a skill you can master quickly and can easily be learned!
needle, thread (button and carpet, upholstery, or topstitch thread is better because it is thicker), a pin or toothpick, buttons, scissors.
Optional: for shank buttons, you can use a small flat button (either clear or to match the fabric) to make the shank button more stable
