Hand Sewn Buttonholes

I spent the day finishing up my pants.  All that remains is buttons and hemming.

I did a lot of hand-buttonholes today, what with the two closure buttons and five fly buttons.




Hand buttonholes are really easy and they don't really take that long.  It's rather relaxing once you get the rhythm of it.  Here are some links to tutorials on how to do hand buttonholes:
