Covered Button Templates

Have you ever wondered how big the fabric you should cut to make a covered button?  Some of my customers do.  It seems like very puzzle and difficult for a beginner to determine how big to cut.  If the fabric is cut too big, maybe you need to trim off the extra fabric.  What if it's cut too small?  Then the edge of the fabric is not tucked inside the button and the fabric is useless sometimes.  I don't like to use a template to measure the fabric but I know it's easier for many people.  So I created a template in PDF file for customers to download.

Here is the link to download the PDF file.

It's simple to use:
1. Cut out the circle template of the size of cover button you need to make
2. (Optional) Cut out the blue circle of the template.  It works like a window so that you can see the pattern on the fabric.
3. Place the template on a fabric and mark the outer (bigger) ring on the fabric.
4. Cut the fabric out.
