Remember this post here about my disastrous buttonhole? I read and re-read the instructions in my manual, and it just didn’t work. I just thought it was my machine, because heaven forbid I would be doing anything wrong.
Today Kathleen from Grosgrain has solved the mystery of button making failures at my house. Her tutorial is great–well, her whole blog is amazing. I noticed something on her machine that she pulled down. And I thought, “Hmm, darn, I don’t have that on my machine.”
Just by the slight chance I had maybe missed the thing, I walked over to my machine, and what d’ya know? There it was, hanging out all innocent–like it was there the whole time.
Sneaky little thing. Sure, you are there NOW, but where were you when I needed you?
And where were you in the instructions?
Oh right, that makes sense now. Buttonhole lever. Number 5. I must have just skipped that part.
