I know a lot of ladies use vintage ones, but I saw this one at JoAnn today and wanted to share. I didn't pick one up, but it looks very similar to the vintage ones I've seen.

You can trace the length of the button interesting. I might have to try and find that one at Hancock fabrics. I wish they had more pictures.

Sarai has a tutorial on her blog.

$4.99 is a lot cheaper than what I paid for my vintage Singer bound buttonhole tool.

Wow, they've probably re-issued it, which is a good thing. I have seen them sell for anywhere from $10 to $20 on eBay. I have an old one that was given to me and it is copper color.

Yes, it looks just like the one I use often and have had for 45 years, just a different color metal. I'd like to have the larger one they used to make that you can use to make pocket openings.

Very interesting! I think I will have to pick one of these up the next time I am at JoAnn. I hope they will consider reissuing the pocket sized one as well!

Wow, weren't the old ones selling for upwards of $50 on ebay a few years ago?
