Button, button, who’s got a button? Heck, I have jars full of buttons. I collect them. I look at them. I play with them. However, I rarely use them for clothing. I’d rather craft with my buttons. Sometimes I need to make sure that a button adheres or lays flat on a surface, but the button I need to use has a shank. The shank is the metal or plastic loop on the back of the button. The shank is needed to sew the button to fabric, but I don’t need to do that! So I need to remove the shank.
If the shank is metal or a very hard material you should use wire cutters to remove the shank. However, a majority of modern buttons have plastic shanks. And there is a great tool, the Button Shank Remover Tool to be exact that does the job perfectly. Watch this video to see how the tool works!
