New York, New Yo...
If you have an old machine that does not have a buttonhole feature, or for some reason this feature stopped working, you can also create a buttonhole using the zig-zag and straight satin stitches on your machine. For the sides of the buttonhole, set the machine to the smallest stitch length and sew short, small stitches, forwards and backwards. To create the length of the buttonholes, sew first a straight, tight stitch. Then, set your machine to its lowest zig-zag setting, and sew over the straight stitch. This is sometimes a neater and more desired buttonhole.
Sweet dresses, an outfit for a doll, and cute embellishments are fun for the holidays!
