Blind stitch consists of six straight stitches

and one zig-zag or blind stitch. It provides

a durable hem that is almost invisible when

using thread the same color as the fabric.

Only the blind stitches will show on right

side of garment. Best suited for straight or

slightly curved hems.

Turn up hem the desired width and press.

Turn raw edge in Va" and press or baste

in place. Fold hem back against right side

of garment with top edge of hem extending


to right of garment fold.

(Fig. 38)

Place garment under presser foot so that

straight stitches will fall on hem edge and

zig-zag stitch just catches one thread of

the folded edge. Guide fabric evenly while

stitching or use cloth guide as an aid. For

better control, use low speed setting.

Press hem.

For a less bulky hem in heavy fabrics

finish raw edge of hem with tape or lace

to eliminate turning in raw edge. Fold

fabric so straight stitches will fall on tape

or lace.
