Do you make button loops?
I first made them for our reversible bucket bag sew along, the button loop was big and easy to make. The technique used didn't involve any turning through small openings, which was a relieved.
Next, I made a button loop for a pencase and found the technique used for the reversible bag button loop didn't really work here as the loop had to be smaller and needed to curve nicely. So, here's a simple how to on making a button loop on a bias cut.
|I love them, but the smaller they are the peskier they get|
Button Loop - How to
1. Cut a 3" x 3" square (adjust the size of the fabric depending on the length you need)
2. Fold it to form a triangle and sew a straight line along the folded side (adjust the width depending on how wide you want your loop to be)
3. Cut the excess fabric
4. Use a loop turner to turn it inside out
5. Turn and press
6. Edge stitch
Now you have a nice and naturally curvy button loop.
Do you make your loops differently? Care to share?
