HIGH-RISK FABRIC – we do not cover using PVC/plastic finishes. We may not cover using leather, pleather, piped lace, brocade, unstabilised jersey, knit or other stretch fabrics.


To create your handmade covered buttons we will need from you:

    • the fabric(s) (note the face side)
    • detailed instructions including the size, quantity, shape style and backing preference (include a sample button for size matching)
    • contact details for the email invoice and return address

If you are posting we will need all the details clearly outlined, the easiest way is to print out and fill in our Covered Buttons Order Form.

Send enough fabric – the cutters are much larger than the finished button. As a guideline we would roughly need 2 to 3 square inch per button depending on the size. Lightweight, sheer or open weave fabrics need double this quantity or additional lining fabric to layer. For example an ‘A4’ size piece of fabric could make approximately:

    • 45x size16L medium weight fabric covered buttons
    • 30x size30L medium weight fabric covered buttons
    • 20x size50L medium weight fabric covered buttons


Our button charges start from £0.25 per button. Buttons come as standard with a black or white shank plastic back.

The below costings are a guide price and are subject to change if your order has a specific request. Additional charges are outlined below.

  • sheer/lightweight fabric = additional £0.05per layer
  • pattern cutting / specific placement  = additional £0.15per button
  • covered backs (not for all fabrics, only using thin or lining fabric)  = additional £0.15per button,
