Step 1: Choosing Buttons
Step 2: Button Feet
You can still do this if you don't have a special foot. Choose a foot that would allow you to do a wide zig-zag stitch and tape or glue a small U-shaped piece of rubber or foam to the bottom. It will be harder to see your button holes to set your stitches, but with a little practice you can do it. The first photo above shows both a real button foot and my faux button foot. The second image shows the real button foot attached to the machine, and the third shows the faux button foot on the machine. For purposes of this instructable I'll be using the real one simply because it will be easier for you to see what I'm doing.
