Replacement Buttons for Cushions
We are cleaning the interior cushions from our 1987 Pearson 31-2 this spring and while we are at it, we want to repair the three cushion buttons that have lost their fabric covers. The attached picture is an original button with the fabric cover still in place. I believe this style button is called a half ball cover button - it consists of two parts, a flat base, and a rounded cover - the fabric is laid over and tucked under the cover, then the cover is pressed onto the base. I can only find cheap brass buttons in the fabric stores, does anyone have any idea where the plastic originals or something similar can be found?
