Modern Tutorials

I am including two modern tutorials for the new techniques introduced in this bulletin. Tailor’s buttohole stitch is the stitch used to finish the edges of the eyelets.

Tailor’s Buttonhole Stitch (for sewing large eyelets) by Bernadette Banner

This tutorial shows sewing a buttonhole. To work an eyelet, follow the instructions in the bulletin for reinforcing the edges and cutting the hole. Then work this buttonhole stitch around the opening.

Sewing a Scalloped Edge by Landauer Publishing

After creating the scalloped edge as shown in the video, finish off with top stitching for an extra professional finish.
