Because you’re using a sewing machine you’ll be able to get a perfect buttonhole and no sewing machine will cost you a penny.
You can make the same buttonholes with a sewing machine, a regular sewing machine, or a serger. If you don’t have a serger you can still make the same buttonholes with a sewing machine, you just need a good quality sewing machine.

How to sew an automatic buttonhole
One of the many joys of sewing for me is creating and using my own buttonholes. The sewing process itself is really enjoyable, and it’s a great way to practice my embroidery. It’s a real pain to make the buttonholes. I have to follow a strict pattern, and I have to do it the right way the first time, or else I have to start all over again. And that’s a real drag!
Six Step To Make a Buttonholes on a Sewing Machine
Step 1: First, you need to make a pattern for the buttonholes. You can make a pattern by drawing it on paper or tracing it from a pattern that you have.
Step 2: Once you have the pattern, you can use it to make the buttonholes. The above diagram was used to create this simple sewing pattern for you to use.
Step 3: Make sure that you are using the right thread for the project.. That is, if you are sewing a square on a fabric with a matching print, use the same thread color as the fabric.
Step 4: Press your fabric. This is important. The fabric should be pressed to make sure that the threads are taut and that the fabric is flat.
Step 5: Begin sewing. Sew along the edge of the fabric, making sure to sew on the right side of the fabric. Start at the corner and continue sewing along the edge. Sew a couple of stitches in each corner to hold the hem down.
Whereas I do this in a few spots to create a nice line of stitching, you can sew it all the way around the edge of the fabric.
Step 6: To the fabric. You are now ready to attach the collar to the shirt. Make sure you sew the inside of the collar so you don’t have to worry about any fabric showing. Sew around the edge of the collar.

How to open the buttonhole
When all buttonholes and buttons have been sewn, you need to open the buttonhole. You can either use a buttonhole puller or a pair of scissors. It depends on the size of your buttonhole.
Open the buttonhole
First of all, turn the buttonhole inside out. It will be easier to open the buttonhole if you do it this way.
Next, you need to open the buttonhole from the inside. This stitch is made up of the same stitches used in sewing.
Previously, you had to cut out the seam, and then stitch the opening back together. Now, you simply cut through the seam.
The last step is to trim the ends of the thread tails. You don’t have to go all the way to the very end of the thread before cutting it. If you used a lighter weight thread, you may need to cut it off farther away from the end of the thread.
Now, you can use your button to close your top buttonhole.
How to sew a basic 4-step buttonhole
How to sew a buttonhole is easy, whether you have a standard sewing machine or a serger. You’ll have to measure your button hole, and then sew it manually.
If you’ve never worked with a stabilizer before, here are a couple of things to keep in mind: Make sure you use the correct stabilizer for the weight of fabric you are using. We prefer to use stabilizers that are a little heavier than the fabric, but they’re not necessary. It’s also a good idea to stabilize your fabric where you will make your buttonholes or set the presser foot on your sewing machine. We stabilize our fabric in the center of the seam.
Draw the fabric diagonally across one edge of the fabric to create a half-square triangle.
In order to attach the buttonhole foot to your sewing machine, you need to find the “T” markings on the back of the foot. Then move the fabric forward under the foot so the needle will pierce the intersection of the “T” markings at the front of the buttonhole.
Push the button until the needle pierce the fabric.
Step 1 Make sure the stitch selector on your sewing machine is set to the buttonhole.
Step 2 Start sewing with your fabric on the top needle, but stop when you get to the front
Stop when you reach the end of the line.
Step 3 Choose buttonhole, Pick out a stitch, sew it in. Pick another and repeat. Then, sew your buttonhole. Once that’s done, slow down so you can sew the last few stitches before you reach the end of the row.
Once your buttonholes have been sewn through, leave long tails and snip your threads. Roll your tails up to make sure they’re snug and tie them off.
You’ll need to cut open the seam of the buttonhole before you start stitching. Once you have done it a few times, it won’t take longer to make a
4-step buttonhole than any other stitch.
Take your time and make sure that you do it right before you sew it on. We would like to thank the staff at Paramount Sewing & Vacuum in Eugene, Oregon for their technical advice.
A buttonhole is a stitch in the seam of a garment that holds the button in place. It is made by inserting the needle through the fabric and pulling it back through the fabric. The most common way to make a buttonhole is to insert the needle into the seam of the fabric and pull the thread through the fabric.
The thread is then tied in a knot to secure the thread. The buttonhole is usually made by making a small loop in the thread and inserting the needle through the fabric, pulling the thread through the fabric and tying a knot in the thread.
