I was having issues with my sewing machine making pretty buttonholes, so I switched to an embroidery buttonhole. It worked perfectly! I had a little bit of an issue trying to figure out how to align them but I worked it out (my aging brain doesn't like to work hard sometimes).

A good idea is to have a small note book beside you when embroidering, just to write things in when you alter a design. If you can save the buttonholes to a memory stick or in your machine, that may save you the stress of having to work it out again. I would not be without my memory book to look things up quickly.

Amazing how the old way of making button holes graduates to the new embroidery way.....so write the directions down so it will come easier the next time!

If i write them down, I'll forget why and where I put it, so I'm not sure what to do.

Use a index note book.For buttonholes look under B.I use a hi lighter pen to hi light each topic in each letter for a quick search.Also I use a pencil so if I change anything, it is easy to rub it out & write in your update

I love the idea of an index card notebook.

Quick, write down what you did in case it is a while before you need this skill again! Congratulations on meeting a new challenge.

I had duplicated the buttonhole, and ended up fitting 8 in my hoop, and then was stumped on how to align them on the garment. I had to go back to using one centered buttonhole.
