Machine buttonhole … Sometimes it is inevitable to stitch a buttonhole on something… even with a machine
Let’s see how to do it step by step.
There is a piece of fabric, a button of the right size, and the buttonhole presser foot for your machine. This foot may vary depending on sewing machines. All I can do to help you is to show mine. Based on this, you may be able to handle yours easier.
First of all, I marked the location of the buttonhole with soap. I will need to poke the needle down at the junction of the two lines.
The following picture shows that there is a latch on the buttonhole foot where the button is to be inserted.
This allows the machine to “measure” the size it has to take. The small lever marked with an arrow “push” (also shown in the previous images) helps.
When you are done with the settings, you can start sewing.
Remember that you must adjust the settings of your sewing machine (it doesn’t matter if you’ve got a computerized or a manual one) to buttonhole seam.
As you can see in the video, the machine closes the buttonhole from both ends.
After cutting the threads, carefully open the gap between the two sides with the buttonhole opener.
Be careful not to rip the closing seams at the two ends of the buttonhole, otherwise the buttonhole will pull open very quickly.
