Whether you have a manual machine or a computerised machine, buttonholes can be fiddly things.
Quite often we assume we don’t even need to know how to do them if we are not likely to make a shirt or a blouse!
But buttonholes can be really useful. Use them to reinforce and opening on a drawstring bag, or do up the back of a loose cushion cover. You can even use them as fastenings on bags, purses and pouches.
Don’t be scared of buttonholes. In this ZOOM replay session you can follow along with Claire. You can sit at your machine and join in, or just watch and try later. If you are joining in, please make sure your machine is threaded with matching top and bottom threads and you have some scraps of fabric and a marking tool to hand. You will also need a button.
We will be using a computerised and a manual machine in the session so will cover both types of buttonhole. The replay is just over an hour long but you will have access to the recording so that you can watch and re-watch as much as you like.
