How Do I Replace Buttons on EQ3 Couch?

Good Questions

Q: We have lost two buttons on our EQ3 Reverie sofa due to them getting snagged on jeans back pockets. At first glance, it seemed they would be easy enough to replace, as the button simply hooks on to a loop of thread that comes up through the sofa cushion.

However, now that the buttons are missing, it's impossible to locate that loop of thread within the cushion, which is not removable. I've tried fishing around with tweezers but am afraid to make the hole larger, and all of the information about button repair that I've been able to find online only addresses buttons that need to be sewn on. I'm having a surprisingly difficult time finding a solution and hoped you Apartment Therapy readers could help me out!
