Obviously the stitch anyone chooses to use is personal preference, and as with other aspects of sewing, there are often several ways to do something. First of all, nobody likes a braggart, and that is exactly what you were doing.I'm not at all affiliated but here is a link to a comparison: writes: Thanks for the tutorial, I love how the pics are large, and I can see each step. And secondly, there seems to be one lesson you did NOT learn growing up and in your 70 years of life, and that is tact.chammer writes: Seems there a quite a number on this thread that think they can do better than Cal, yet I haven't been able to find THEIR tutorials. Thank you for teaching a craft that is quickly going extinct. Stitch Kitty writes: I'm excited to find this tutorial, since my sewing machine (and dear friend/co-conspirator) is an antique.I didn't want to replace it just so that I can make button holes, and I certainly don't want to take it to a tailor and pay to have it done.Now begin blanket-stitching around the hole from left to right (if you don't know how, hop over to Erika Kern's tutorial here), working your stitches pretty close together.Work around until you get to the end of the first side, then continue around the end of the hole in about three stitches, with the second stitch extending out straight from the cut hole, until you are on the other side.
To finish, slip the needle through the top of the first stitch to complete the circle, then from the wrong side, make a tiny stitch (picking up only two or three threads of the fabric) at the base of the first stitch, and before pulling the stitch tight, insert the needle through the loop to make a knot.Technology in sewing buttonholes by machine is incredibly advanced these days: Pop a button into the special foot, press a button, and a perfectly sized buttonhole is done in a moment.But there are many reasons why you might want to sew a buttonhole by hand, and most people don't even realize it's possible!If your fabric is very thin, insert a layer of interfacing in between. Use tailor's chalk or another temporary marking tool to indicate the size and placement of the hole(s). You might find it helpful to mark the center point of each hole for the next step. You'll be using the double strand for extra strength.I began by stitching a 1-inch hem, which will be my facing. Starting in the middle of one side of the hole, insert the needle between the two layers (to hide the knot) and come out on the right side, about 1/8 inch from the cut edge.
