|Sample to try buttonholes. I didn't have any interfacing handy, so I turned the fabric over twice (four layers). The buttonhole will automatically size to the button (very cool)!|
|I choose the buttonhole that my manual said was for lightweight material|
|Marked the top/start of the buttonhole.|
|The buttonhole foot just snaps on. Center your mark in the opening.|
|There is a little grey tab/bar that you need to pull down. This will let the machine know how to size the buttonhole.|
|Use snips or a sharp seam ripper to cut open the hole.|
|The buttons fit perfectly|
|I love these "antique" buttons.|
This was really easy! I have know idea why I was so nervous about trying this. Fancy, smancy pillows, here I come!
I'm linking up with the wonderful Melissa at Happy Quilting for TNT Thursday. I can't wait to see what wonderful things everyone else is trying this week!
