Once your buttonhole is complete, there should be a loop of buttonhole twist at the top of the buttonhole and two ends coming out the bottom. You can just trim the buttonhole twist thread off, or pull it through to the wrong side of the fabric and knot or sew securely.

    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…
