Transcript:Fix Jeans Button

Hi, I'm Debbie Anderson for About.com. There's nothing worse than having the button on your favorite pair of blue jeans falling off just when you need to wear them the most. So today I'm going to show you how to replace the button on your blue jeans when it falls off in just a few easy steps.

Push the Button Tack in the Proper Position

For this task, you will need a Blue Jeans “No Sew” button kit. First, locate the button area on the waistband of the blue jeans where the old button fell off. Next, push the button tack for the new no sew blue jean button through the inside of the jean waistband material where you want the button to be located.

The pointy end of the no sew blue jean button tack should be facing the outside of the blue jeans material.

Attach the No Sew Blue Jeans Button

Next, attach the hole on the inside of the front no sew blue jeans button to the button tack pointing toward the outside material.

Use your fingers to squeeze the front of the no sew blue jean button together with the button tack on the inside of the blue jean material just until you feel the two pieces of the no sew button click together.

Double Check That the Button Is Secure

Next, zip up the jeans and then slide the button through the button hole on the jeans to make sure that the new button lines up the way you want it to and give the button a little jiggle to make sure that it's on there good and tight.

Finally, put on those jeans and enjoy. Not only will replacing the button with a new no sew blue jean button save you money, but it's a great way to keep those favorite pairs of jeans around for many years to come. Thank you for watching. To learn more, please visit us on the web at About.com.
