I've just finished sewing some buttons on to a PJ top. I didn't want the bit directly behind the button to rub against the skin (as there is a little thread "hill") so I cut out a small square piece of interfacing and ironed it over the top of the thread "hill". This should also hopefully keep it safer from wear and tear!

As the fabric was a light cream, you can hardly even see I've added it. Just be careful if you have heat sensitive (i.e. plastic) buttons that you don't have the iron temperature on too high/use prolonged heat otherwise it could cause the buttons to rub off on the fabric.
