    That is really great. Very clear photos too. I immediately rushed to check my buttonhole foot and found that it does have the little bits on the ends that will allow me to do that. And it’s not even in the manual (which I know by heart by now!). So thanks, SewHappyClothes, when I have practised it a few times, I’ll try it on the coat I’ve got coming up…

      Thanks :) It’s always fun to discover new little things on our machines! I’d love to see your coat when it’s finished.
