Item details

Green Buttonhole Attachment

When I was enrolled in Home Economics in the early sixties, one of the skills I was most eager to master was that of making a buttonhole. My mother was a seamstress and we had an old treadle sewing machine, which, unfortunately, did not accommodate one of these buttonhole attachments. In class, I felt so grown handling the unit and experimenting with the different cams while I practiced making those buttonholes. It didn’t take long because this is fairly easy to operate.
Singer Sewing Machine Buttonhole Attachment Kit:

• Retro-styled, Atomic-age design, clamshell case resembles a green space ship!
• Olive green-toned, plastic case sits on four molded feet
• Case measures 10.5” long x 4.5” deep x 3” tall

• Makes straight & keyhole buttonholes in various sizes and lengths
• Includes beige colored attachment, 4 different size cams/templates, and a metal feed cover faceplate
• Cams included: 13/16, 5/8, 5/16, 1 1/16
• Set the width of the stitches from narrow to wide

• Use with Singer Sewing Machines
• Retro early 1960s
• Nos. on back read: USA U.S. Patent No- 2482607 and 2536620 or 2547925
• Attachment is in very good condition—gently used
• Case has been well used and the hinge of the case is broken from frequent use
• Has not been tested—sold as is

If you are a 60s aficionado, and if you still use a sewing machine from that era, this attachment will be a perfect add-on accessory for your sewing projects. The fantastic, mid-century Jetsons-look case is awesome to own and display, but it will make a great gift for someone else who appreciates the 1960s.

In your sewing area, it will contribute to amazing retro sewing décor, whether you need a button holer or not for your collection. Imagine this lovely treasure on your desk, looking like a UFO, holding your pencils and pens, or on your dresser, it could be a funky, elliptical jewelry case. What a great conversation starter!
