Learn how to use the Button Sewing Foot to sew on four-hole buttons.
So you have a terrific automatic buttonhole foot. But what about sewing on the button? Is there a special foot for that?
Yes, it's called the Button Sewing Foot and it fits all Janome top-loading sewing machines. If you have a front-loading machine, you'll want the Button Sewing Foot (front loading machines).
This accessory has two rubberized feet that hold your button still while your machine sews it into place.
The Button Sewing Foot is easy to set up. You just snap it on. Then choose your machine's button sew-on feature. If your machine doesn't have this, you simply choose a zigzag stitch and lower your feed dogs.
You position your button under the foot and then adjust your stitch width until your needle drops right into the center of the two holes. You test where your needle will pierce with the handwheel. Then simply stitch in those two holes.
But what if your button has four holes? Watch Button Sewing Foot Video: Sewing On Four-Hole Buttons. This demo was created using the Memory Craft 11000 Special Edition sewing and embroidery machine.
