I couldn’t finish my Linen blouse…. Buttons…
Janice Ferguson to the rescue!! WOOHOO!!
Have you ever put buttons on with a sewing machine?
Most machine companies make a foot for their machines to put buttons on… The foot looks like a half square. On My viking I just take off the snap on foot and use the shank as a”holder.” With this Bernina, I was too lazy and too excited to see the finished garment so I just took off the foot… Drop your feed teeth and zero your stitch length. Set a zig-zag width by hand turning the wheel to get a zig to go into the hole, and then a zag to fit in the next whole by adjusting the width number.
This “flower” Pin was given to me by my Daughter-in-Law’s Mother, Patty. In Patty’s church, there is a group of Ladies called the “Succotash Sisters.” They make and sell a little bit of this and a little bit of that (thus the name Succotash.)
Patty sent me this flower and isn’t a perfect match! This whole outfit is coming along wonderfully!!
Oh… I mentioned the supply issue living here… check out how much thread I have to make the buttonholes… I am probably going to have to use some matching embroidery thread!!! I may make it though…. I’m determined!
