An afternoon finding out about buttonholes.
When I was a teenager I dabbled with sewing because you had to at school, but I never seemed to get beyond the tacking stage and the big seams. Facings and buttonholes always seemed a step too far. So I've never made myself anything.
I did make my daughters some dresses when they were small - before they became too old to complain!
So why, especially when yesterdays posting was all about how busy I've been, did I spend an afternoon making this? I bought my machine in 2013, and have never even looked at how to do a buttonhole, so I needed to get to grips with that amongst other things. Amazing how things have changed in the last 25 years!! It was a doddle with automatic measuring, a choice of styles, and a button to push. Mmmm, it's ALMOST enjoyable!! Not saying it's a work of genius of course, but a start. My poor granddaughters.
