Here's one of the buttons being used to set the size of the button hole.
Whole thing then attached to the machine, and the button hole stopper brought down to lie between the two guides on the buttonholer.
Then, of course a few practice runs on some spare material to find out where the button hole runs once the fabric is put in place.
I found to get my button holes in the right place I wanted to put the buttonholer almost to the edge of the fabric and then the button hole stopper against the back guide. Like so:
Then it's just a case of putting the foot down and letting the machine do it's thing to produce button holes as marked on the fabric using the pattern guide. I'm quite pleased with these.
After cutting the fabric inside each button hole I then marked through the button holes onto the fabric of the other side of the shirt using a biro.
Just need some warmer weather again now, so that I can wear it without covering it in layers of fleecies for warmth!
