Measure the back of your button from the edge to the shank. Draw around your button using a tailors pen on your scrap fabric, then add the distance from the edge to the shank around the circle.
I drew the basic lines of the pokÃ©ball onto the smaller circle, using a circle stencil for the small, middle circle and measuring with a ruler to find the centre line (make this line about 1mm). Once your lines are drawn on, stick a piece of masking tape across the middle, touching the line you drew across the middle.
Paint one side of the circle red, overlapping the masking tape if necessary.
My fabric paint required me to iron the back of the fabric to set the paint when dry, so I did this now.
Repeat step 3 on the other side of the circle, this time using white paint.
Repeat step 4 once the white paint is dry, and then add two pieces of masking tape on either side of the centre line.
Fill in the centre line between the two pieces of masking tape using black paint, leaving the small, middle circle blank.
After removing the masking tape, once the black paint is dry, paint the middles circle in using white paint and black for the outline.
Cut out the painted circle and sew tacking stitches around the outside.
Pull the tacking stitches tight to gather the circle around the button and pull it as tight as possible.
Sew the fabric tight around the gathered area to secure the fabric around the button.
Attach your button to your garment and wear with pride!
