You just have to lay your design out on foam first with marker. Check out the post by joost.

Then you have to take a razor blade and cut 1/2 through the foam. You start in the middle of the foam and as you work your way out just tuck the the material into the lines that you cut.

Hope this helps.

Good advice. Though not necessary, it also helps to cut out the foam where the buttons will be place. If you don't, you will over compress the foam when you put the material and buttons of on. Makes a world of difference in the look.

true, also dont cut too deep with the lines, you end up with the lines being too width when you`re done with it

the point of the button is also the point where two lines cross, just push your finger in where they meet....

i used a 1 inch hole saw on a drill but used it in reverse it worked good

do you only cut 1/2 way through with the hole saw and chew out a bit of the material, or do you actually cut all the way through?

Thanks! Sick headliner!!!

i always just popped an upholstery pin through it with a small loop of nylon string and hooked a button hook (sorry forgot the name of this tool) and pushed it up through the material to the top...unhook it and hook the button stings and pull it back down through.. ive done the reverse drill bit thing too but i was usually too busy to go looking for the drill when i was doing this
