29. Sew On A Button
I cannot stress enough at how important it is to learn a couple of basic sewing skills so that you can fix mishaps in your wardrobe whenever they occur. The times of over-paying for clothing repair are over; it’s time to take it into your own hands, and you can start by learning how to sew on a button. There are numerous times throughout the average person’s life when a button pops off and throws off everything, and sewing a button takes only about five minutes. Start by creating a knot in the thread you’re using and place the button in the correct spot; then, sew between the holes until the button is secure, and tie it off after wrapping it around the back of the button about six times to finish. If you know someone with a sewing machine, chances are there is an automatic button sewing feature that can make this hack even easier.
