- Select your buttons and place one in the attachments gauge. This will determine the length in which the button hole needs to be.
- Refer to your manual or in my case, the lid which houses the attachments, it also has a legend of settings. Change your machine to the appropriate settings.
- On my machine, there is a lever just behind the needle. Pull it down into position - it should sit nicely behind the front section of the button hole attachment.
- Practise making a button hole on a scrap piece of fabric.
- Once you have had a practise on scrap, mark in chalk where you would like your button holes to be. It works in reverse - so the marking should be the bottom of your button hole.
- Then sew, slowly. It should work automatically, making the correct sized hole as per the button being held in the gauge. My attachment does a complete button hole in one go, yours may be a little different.
- With your unpick - carefully cut the fabric inbetween the two ends.
- And your button hole is done!
Does your machine do button holes differently to this?
