This is the simple way to ensure professional looking buttonholes!
The sharpened chisel edge will cut any width opening when placed over a scrap block of hard wood (such as maple or oak) and pounded gently ... you can also use a wooden kitchen cutting board as a cutting surface.
This steel blade cutter makes the job of opening buttonholes or small cuts on fabrics easy.
After stitching a buttonhole, use this cutter to open it by placing and pressing the blade in between the stitched buttonhole vertically.
For buttonholes smaller thank 1/2", drape the sewn buttonhole over the edge of the scrap block of hard wood, and cut half of the buttonhole at a time.
This cutter is also useful for making small cuts and cutting through curves.
Approximately 1/2" (12 mm) wide blade.
You'll supply the scrap block of hard wood.
