Video: Sewing On Two-Hole Buttons With The Button Sewing Foot
Are you still sewing on buttons by hand? There's an easier way.
The Button Sewing Foot makes sewing on two-hole buttons fast and easy. And it works with all Janome sewing machines.
Setting Up The Foot
To attach the foot, slide the bar onto the back of the presser foot holder and then lower it to snap the foot into place.
Some Janome machines have a button sew-on feature, which will automatically lower the feed dogs. Or you can use a zigzag stitch but be sure to the lower feed dogs manually.
Using The Foot
- Set your button under the foot and lower it in place. The rubber extensions will hold you button while it is being sewn on.
- Position the button so that the needle goes into the middle of the left hole. To check this, use the handwheel on the machine to lower the needle.
- Now for the right hole. Continue turning the handwheel until the needle goes up and comes down in the right hole. Adjust the width of your stitch so that the needle comes down in the center of the hole.
- When you're ready, stitch the button.
To see this demonstrated watch Button Sewing Foot Video: Sewing On Two-Hole Buttons. In this clip the Button Sewing Foot is shown on the Memory Craft 11000 Special Edition, which ties the button off automatically.
With the Button Sewing Foot you can do more than just sew buttons. It can also attach snaps, hooks and eyes, and even couch bows in place.
