To expand on Lucy in Virginia's tip for making covered buttons using slippery fabric... I use spray adhesive to hold things in place. I just made some covered buttons where the fabric used was somewhat sheer and I had to use lining fabric plus the fashion fabric to get the look I wanted. After struggling with trying to get the layers to stay put on the button mold, I turned to spray adhesive typically used for embroidery projects. First I lightly sprayed the back of the fashion fabric, then stuck the lining fabric to that (you can do this before or after cutting out the proper size fabric circles you need to cover the button mold). Then, I lightly sprayed the top of the button mold and stuck the fabric/lining combo to the mold. It held things in place beautifully and, if I needed to adjust the position of the fabric/lining on the mold, I was able to do so by just peeling it up and sticking it back down again to where I needed. Try it, it works! (You can see the finished product on my review of BWOF 05-2008-105.)

I have also used iron-on tricot interfacing instead of lining.
