My Creativity Snuffer is, get this, Buttonholes!

on January 27, 2011

Blanket to wrap baby

Well, I’ve figured out what is squashing my sewing!  Buttonholes.  My current project requires buttonholes, and I don’t know how to do a buttonhole.  But, I did try to figure it out, not successfully, yet.  I know where they go and how big they should be.  I know what foot to use on Bernie.  It’s just getting Bernie to make the button hole. (Bernie is my Bernina Virtuosa 153 Quilter’s Edition sewing machine.)  So, I am passed the “hump” and will seek help from some of my sewing friends.  Now, if I can just get through the concert coming up:)

    Hi Mary,

    It’s lovely to hear from you.

    Re: buttonholes… do you have an automatic buttonhole foot – it looks like a foot with a large contraption. If so, that should go pretty easy – but always do a test first. 😉 My experience is that even if the test works, sometimes the real thing still messes up – so, don’t be surprised if you have to break out the seam ripper taking out the stitches.

      Hi Wendy, I do have an automatic one, but my buttonhole needs to be larger than it will allow! The seam ripper is my friend…the seam ripper is…. 🙂
