Hello! Would anyone be interested in helping me make a buttonhole in a PES file? I've purchased several PES files on Etsy, but the slit is too wide..or I couldn't modify the buttonhole to the right size. I won't be able to take a local class until July - so I'm stumped. I would appreciate your help! PS... I've surfed around the site and am just amazed at the talent and excited to see what is poassible. Sincerely, Steph

It is nice that you are willing to help, however, it would be illegal to send a bought (or free downloaded) file to you (or to anyone else) for whatever reason, including having it altered.

I'm wondering. Did Steph get the buttonhole she needed. Everyone was so willing to help then we never heard anything else.

Can you tell what software you are using - I assume it is PE design, but which version? I don't use Brother software, but I know a number of Cuties do and might be able to help you.

Hello!! I'm so sorry for not getting back sooner! The Five Star Fonts button hole actually works great for what I need. I have so many files of!! And Thanks for all the offers to help me.. I was just about ready to go take an individual class a JoAnns, since they don't have any schedule classes til July. The reason is that I was putting these on newborn sleepers. I work in a neonatal unit and when we use zipper footed sleepers, the nurses have been cutting a hole in the leg to slide the monitor cables through.. which didn't look that good. So I need a buttonhole with a then slit that had a wider border and big enough to fit the monitor piece. So that's all good now.

I work nights and do several in a row, so have been away from the internet.

Thanks so much for the warm welcome!! Embroidery is a lot bigger learning curve than I anticipated!! My other hobby is making glass beads, which seems really easy right now. : )
