amis au fil des ans

just a few good friends, sharing adventures in family, arts, and sometimes heavy machinery

homework finished

first attempt was marginally successful. i did make a buttonhole, and it was exactly the right size for my button.  yay!  i’m not entirely happy with the results because it’s a bit sloppy-looking and i don’t quite understand how to make it look cleaner.

how did you guys cut the fabric down the middle?  i used a seam ripper, but it seems a little unfinished.  i also seem to be having some issues with my camera today, but it may have something to do with the intense sunlight coming in through the window.  all-in-all a good exercise!  still need to practice.

ok, i answered my own question.  gotta turn the stitch down to the smallest size on both settings.  duh.  (see photo below)
