The buttonhole foot slides open so that you may insert the button which you are making a button hole for so that it may be sized correctly.
Slide open the foot, place the buttin on the spot and slide it closed.
Turn the pattern selector off and back on to the buttonhole pattern to reset. (Do this each time you make a buttonhole to reset)
Pull down the buttonhole lever located up and to the left of the needle bar. Pull it ALL THE WAY DOWN so that it will be tripped by the buttonhole foot as it moves.
Set the stitch width to about 4 or 4.5.
Set the stitch length to a very tight stitch (but usually slightly higher than the recommended marking)
Set the upper tension on 3.
Use an appropriate stabilizer. This is the key to a good buttonhole.
Lower the foot on the fabric, ensuring that the foot goes down without springing forward or back.
Make a few practice buttonholes, adjusting the width and length untill you get what you are looking for.

First thing you'll need to do is switch the presser foot.
Your machine should have come with a specific button hole foot.
(might have an R on the bottom)
To snap off:
Raise the needle and presser foot.
Press the red button on the back of the foot holder
and the foot will drop.
To snap on:
Place the presser foot so the pin on the foot lies just
under the groove of the foot holder.
Lower the foot holder to lock the foot in place.
Select which buttonhole style you would like to stitch.
This can be done by selecting a mode (buttonholes are 06-08)
and then adjusting to the desired length and width.
After you do this, lower the presser foot and hold the foot pedal down.
The machine will automatically sew the buttonhole and stop when it is finished
All you'll need to do is just cut the thread after.
Hope you found this information helpful.
