I started working on this sampler, and did not touch it for two days[went to Dubai] , result instead of buttonhole bars these samples became whipped buttonhole variations. I did not realize the mistake till today! Here are the whipped buttonhole samples-

4.The mistake starts in this sample, where I wanted to create a chained or braided effect over the buttonhole stitches, which I did by just whipping. Small straight stitches are worked over the buttonhole stitch rows in the next two samples, in the second row, the buttonhole stitch itself goes through the straight stitches and whipped with pink thread. In the third row, the whipping pink thread goes through the straight stitches.

5.Closed buttonhole stitch, bullion buttonhole stitch and top knotted buttonhole stitches are whipped in these rows. Here we have to imagine these samples with reversed buttonhole stitches to make this reversed buttonhole sampler!
