I have always has little success when cutting my buttonholes. I have a Phaff machine and use the foot to form the buttonholes and they come out beautifully. It’s when I cut the holes….most often (usually always) I end up cutting the threads on one side causing it to fray. I treat the buttonhole with fray check before I cut them and allow lots of time for it to dry. I have used very small sharp sissors to cut them but as luck would have it one always gets messed up. It’s so disappoining when you sew a beautiful item and end up with such an unprofessional finish to your button holes.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
