I know about the Hump Jumper to go over thick seams, but I've never heard of the Buttonhole Buster (scroll down to see it). Apparently it helps when sewing buttonholes where the fabric layers are uneven.

Has anyone heard of this notion or tried it?

I've never heard of it but I've always wanted this type of device. I know Bernina makes something that works to even out the foot when making buttonholes, I've just never been able to justify the expense. Now I can have one at the reasonable price of $3.25 plus shipping.

I just clicked on the What is On Sale button, and it shows it for $2.10.

I just ordered all three of the products for $10.00 as I was looking for the Hump Jumper when I saw the Buttonhole Buster. With shippping, it came to $12.50.

I tried to order but it didn't work. Did it take you to an order screen? I am wondering maybe I did not click on the right things?
Thank you.

I clicked on the Purchase button at the top of the screen (looks like a spool of thread). It seems like you have to click on the spool itself and not the word "Purchase."

Please post when you've tried out the buttonhole device so the rest of us will know if it works.

I'd like to know if this works as well. It shows it with what looks like a regular foot, not anyone's buttonhole foot that you'd use for an automatic buttonhole foot. Do post if you've used it

My order shows it will come in about 10 days...so I will try it out then. It looks like it would help, & the hump a jump too I want to try.. Keeping my fingers crossed!

That was my question, too!
