Cut a piece of 8-by-5 1/2-inch seersucker. Pin together with right sides facing, and, leaving a 1/4-inch seam allowance, sew along long side, creating a tube. Turn right side out.
Fold rectangle so seam is at the center. Iron flat. Press unfinished edges in 1/4 inch, and sew shut.
Sew snap to ends.
Cover button with fabric according to package instructions, then sew on.

Fabric-covered button kit
These napkin rings were inspired by the cuff of a seersucker shirt. To take it a step further, add a button covered with the fabric in a contrasting color. Can’t sew a buttonhole? Don’t worry. The button is ornamental; a snap keeps the ring closed.
This is a great way to put scraps of seersucker to use.
