Inleiding

Let's suppose that one of your garments has lost a button. This would normally not be a matter of major concern, except for the fact that this particular button was not like other buttons: this button was sewn on with a ribbon. Luckily, a ribbon button such as yours can in fact be replaced, and this is how.

In this guide we are using contrasting thread for visibility. When it comes time to do your actual project, you will want to use thread and that matches the color of your ribbon.

If you don't have a sewing machine, you can still complete this guide by hand sewing.

For replacement parts or further assistance, contact Patagonia Customer Service.

    • Pull the ribbon taught.

    • The button should be facing with the backside out.

    • Fold the button and ribbon back over, so that the other side of the button is facing out.

    • Fold the free end of the ribbon, tucking it into the little pocket, in the same manner as the first.

    • Overlap the two ends of the ribbon so that they sit directly on top of one another.

    • Sew directly over the seam, closing the little pocket.

    • This seam should catch both ends of the ribbon between the two layers of the pocket.
