    This may sound silly but I am so proud of myself for this. I have had my machine for 5 years and have NEVER used my buttonhole foot. I don't find the manual really informative - it seems to assume you already know how to do all things related to sewing. It has been a long time since my "New Owners" class at my LQS, so it made me really happy that I figured this out on my own!!

    Obviously , I try to as well- LOL!! I managed to avoid doing one for 5 years! But, I made a cover for my Kindle from the Moda Bakeshop pattern and felt it needed a closure of some sort as it will be thrown into my bottomless pit of a purse!

    Well done, I know how you feel as I did a congrat dance when I did my first one, I hadn't realised how easy they were to do and how good they look.

    I really like the look of the buttonholes done with the 'old' Singer buttonholer that has the cams. They are so perfect! The ones that you do with the 'built-in' buttonhole stitches just don't measure up (or is it that I got spoiled???)

    thats so cool! Reward yourself with a cookie. =) My goal for myself this year is to learn more about my machine and not be intimidated by it at all! All the feet..all the functions. Even changing the tension settings. Yikes!

    My mom has an old Kenmore with the same system you are talking about on the Singer. Those buttonholes do look great. I was really surprised how good the Bernina foot was. It has some kind of sensor on it that remembers how long your first side is and stitches back the identical distance. All you do is push your reverse button to switch directions. As long as your marking is the right length for your button - you are good to go !
