I’m attempting to make an ottoman with a tufted button top, but having some difficulty with the buttons themselves. I am using upholstery leather, and a Dritz Cover Button Kit. I thought I had figured out how to make it work by thinning the leather and snipping bits of excess material out. They look decent, but the strength isn’t there, as I was getting the buttons fixed down, one cover popped off from the pressure of the foam.
I stopped there, I don’t want to get the cover fixed down only to have a button cover pop off again. Do we have a button press that would work for this purpose? The current size I have is a 1-1/8" button, and I’m flexible on that.
