Blindstitching provides a durable hem

finish that can be used on a variety of light

and medium weight fabrics. It is best
suited to straight hems. Taped, bound,

turned, or unfinished hem edges can be

blindstitched with equal ease. Blind­

stitching takes a little practice, however,
so make a test sample first.

1. Mark, turn, and press hem in the usual

way. (You may want to baste the

turned hem to hold it in place. If so,

be sure to place the basting at least

i Inch below the top edge of the hem.)

2. With the work wrong side up, turn the

hem under, creating a soft fold about

^ inch from the top edge of the hem.

Press lightly.

3. Position the hem under the foot.

4. Lower the foot and stitch so that the

straight stitches fall on the hem edge
and the sideward stitches pierce the
soft fold.
