Know Your Basic Buttonholes
It’s a standard buttonhole for garments, and the one you would be most likely to use in home décor projects. You can also make this style of buttonhole on even the most of basic sewing machines.
If you are sewing a buttonhole manually, all you need is a standard zig zag foot, which is most likely the one that you use for most everything on your machine. It’s much faster and easier, however, to sew a buttonhole with a buttonhole foot on a sewing machine that can sew 4-step or 1-step buttonholes.
The most basic sewing machines use a four-step process to sew a buttonhole. It requires a little extra measuring on your part. And when you’re sewing, you’ll need to manually stop at the appropriate buttonhole length. This demo was done on a Janome MyStyle 100 mechanical machine.
