In today’s video I take on the subject of sewing button holes, something that can cause a fair bit of anxiety for some of us. In fact I used to do all sorts of things to avoid sewing buttonholes back when I started and continued with that habit for a long time.
But then I decided to master sewing buttonholes and really practise hard and get over my fears. In this video I’ll show you, step-by-step, my method for making beautiful buttonholes, including interfacing, placings, marking, thread and methods for opening the buttonhole.
Some steps in this video does require an automatic buttonhole function on your sewing machine, but even if you haven’t, most tips in this video will still be useful. Of course I’m not saying that this the only way to sew buttonholes, it’s just what I have found works well. And I would love to hear all your favourite tips and tricks for making buttonholes.
