A (not so) young Jedi sewer makes a break through.
This week I was adding buttons to a (what was kind of a muslin but has become a real piece) cardigan and since I wasn't being particularly anal I decided to trust my machine's automatic buttonhole foot. Usually I still mark and use my foot pedal, but for some crazy second I forgot what machine I was at and I pushed the start button (I have never used this button) instead of the needle down button. The machine went into crazy action at top speed (faster than my foot pedal will make it go)... perfect button hole. I put aside the sample scrap and grabbed the garment - and perfect button hole: 6 times. huh!
