Welcome to Part 5! Today we will take a look at the Button Sew On Foot. This specialty foot enables you to sew a button on your garment or project with your sewing machine! Time to put away the hand sewing needle and learn how to use this foot. Save time and add buttons to your items with ease - even tiny 1/4" buttons!
I'll be demonstrating on both a Bernina 330 machine using foot #18, and on a Brother model machine using the "M" foot. You can find a button sew on foot for a variety of machine types and at a variety of price points. Check the links below or do a quick search on sites like Amazon to see what's available.
A note regarding buttons smaller than 1/2" wide: Because these buttons are smaller than the width of the presser foot, I use a tiny piece of double-sided quilters tape to hold the button straight when sliding it under the foot. The tape can easily be removed (if the buttons will be functional) after sewing by simply folding back the fabric and peeling off the tape. Be sure to do this immediately after sewing or it may be more challenging to remove.
Are you ready to dive in and see how this little foot is used? Let's go...
Follow along in the tutorial video posted below as I show you an overview, a comparison of the different models, installation, use, and application.
