Buttonhole tutorials

I was just looking for a particular "Madetosew" tutorial and discovered she has recently done several covering buttonholes.  I must admit I have looked at them all yet but I`ve found her other tutorials very good in the past        Intro to buttonholes           Manual buttonholes           1 step automatic           4 step            Keyhole          Making cording for buttonholes          Corded buttonholes         this it to sew a button on rather than a buttonhole

P.S. having now watched a couple I wonder if she should have put more emphasis on preparing the fabric beforehand i.e. stabilising it properly as that is what seems to cause problems for many people

Thanks for that. Haven't come across her before - isn't she clear and easy to understand? Lovely.

I'm  afraid that I'm too lazy/ scared to do them! I go to D M Buttons in Wardour mews, usually have to leave the garment there, but last time it was only £6 for five buttonholes on a Linton tweed jacket, I find my machine does perfect test buttonhole and then chews up the next one!
