One (1) Inch in size - which is sometimes the case (like with a jacket or on a coat). I have been known to FORCE a 1 1/8 inch button into this foot with pretty good results.
But, there are times when I want to use big ornate buttons - what then??? During times like that I am FORCED to make a bound buttonhole - which I am capable of doing. I have made some pretty decent bound buttonholes (if I might say so myself) but most times I'm lazy and just do not want to take the extra time to make them.
This week I'm working on another
|Don't laugh at the slightly crooked lines drawn on my stabilizer|
|A little hard staying on the lines, but I double stitched each buttonhole|
|This shows the right side of the buttonhole on this tweedy wool blend fabric|
|The double stitched buttonhole is sturdy, and just the right size to accommodate the 2" self tie belt.|
Many of you have probably already done this before, but I thought I'd share just in case there's someone who hasn't.
What method do you use to make over sized buttonholes???
