Simplified bound buttonholes
Added Sep 28, 2010
Ta-ta! The final bound buttonhole should then look like this! Neat, isn't it?
If you're using facing, you should pin or baste the facing around the buttonhole, then place pins through all four corners of each buttonhole. Mark the corners of the buttonholes on the right side of the facing. Remove the pins, and stitch with a short stitch length between the markings. This should form a rectangle the same size as the bound buttonhole. Cut through the facing and clip diagonally into the corners. The raw edges should then be turned in along the stitching, pressed, and sewn to the buttonhole.
