Ok, Im a self taught sewer and am attempting to re-upholster a car seat and stroller which has gone really well until now.

I cannot figure out how to make the buttonholes for the straps to go through.

I have a Singer model 3820 which is the 150 year anniversary one seen here:

I bought it used and it did not come with a buttonhole foot so after calling the Singer help line I was advised to purchase this foot:

I cannot figure out how to use it, the instructions for using a buttonhole foot for my machine is confusing as all get out.

Can anyone help!?

Thanks

A quick google search turned this up

http://craftzine.com/101/sewing101_buttonholes/

The actual stitch width/ length and setting for the different sides of the buttonhole should be in your manual.

If the link doesn't help, try googling "sewing buttonhole."

I have the same foot on my Pfaff - its easy to use - just look at the link, then practice a bit on some scraps and you'll see how it works.

Good luck!

You have no idea how much I love you right now!

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for and I dont know how I could have missed it with my own google search, my manual does not have pictures and Im a very visual learner so this helps so much.

Thank you so much!!
