When you sew a buttonhole or topstitching, do you ever have a problem with the bobbin thread being pulled to the top? Even if the thread is the same color, it can make a good buttonhole look bad. If you’ve ever had this problem, I have a solution for you.

The last step is to put the thread through the little hole at the end of the arm. You might never have done this before, but it makes the bobbin thread have slightly more tension, keeping it on the bottom of whatever you are sewing.

I just use a bobbin of another color and then topstitch or “buttonhole” away!
