Use this guide to create a buttonhole with your sewing machine. We’re using a Bernina 830, but the process should be similar for all sewing machines with a mechanical buttonhole dial. Since every sewing machine is different, refer to your sewing machine’s owner’s manual for specific information. In this guide we’re using contrasting thread for visibility. When it comes time for your actual project, you’ll want to use thread that matches the color of your fabric.

  1. Select your buttonhole foot. Buttonhole feet can vary in appearance, so check you manual.

I got up to position (!) 2 ok, then when I tried to go back up on position 3 it didn't work and just chewed up my fabric. Is it supposed to go backwards, or are you supposed to turn the fabric around? Did I do something wrong?

The same thing happened to me when I first tried this too, Holly.

I discovered that I was over-stitching position 2.

Now, I do a maximum 3 stitches only, before I go on to position 3 and everything works beautifully. I don’t have to turn the fabric around - position 3 stitches in reverse, and I finish off with a couple of stitches in position 2, to top off the button-hole.

I hope this helps!
