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)
