This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in textiles.

In this project you will make and sew a new button hole! You could sew it by hand, or by machine.

Here's a great video on how to handsew a buttonhole:



How to use an automatic buttonhole foot on a sewing machine:



This one shows how to measure the hole size for your button:




To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
– picture of the cloth before you made a buttonhole
– progress picture during making of the buttonhole
– the finished buttonhole
– the button going through the button hole to show you made it the right size

Approved BB submission
My daughter wanted a Princess Belle dress for her doll, and I ended up making and sewing my very first buttonhole in the process!
