Set zigzag stitch width stop at O. Place the
button so that its left hole comes directly
under the needle, then gently lower the pres
ser foot (Fig. 36).
Move zigzag stitch width stop until the needle
comes down exactly over the right hand hole
in the button.
Turn the hand wheel slowly by hand to be
sure the needle enters both holes in button
When needle goes into the center of each
hole, run the machine at medium speed, mak
6 or 8 stitches, stopping with the needle in the hole.
To lock the zigzag stitch and prevent ravelling, set the stitch width at O, and take a few
stitches in the same hole. If you wish you may place a rounded toothpick over the
button, between the two holes, and sew button to fabric in regular way.
Remove the toothpick and wind thread under the button, forming a shank to fasten.
Apply the above method to sew on buttons with four holes, hooks and snaps, etc. If a four
hole button is to be sewn, follow the same procedure as for the two hole button. Now lift
presser foot slightly and move fabric to permit stitching the remaining two holes. Hooks,
snaps, etc., are sewn to the fabric with the same procedure as for sewing two hole buttons.
