Another Way to Create a Great Narrow Hemcomments (3) August 30th, 2008
Shannon Dennis did a great post a week or so ago on machine rolled hems. She has the knack when it comes to using that special foot on her machine. I never seem to be able to make mine work. Actually, I probably am just not patient enough. But, I’ve learned a fool-proof method of doing a neat narrow hem by machine. If you’re like me, and haven’t really mastered the rolled-hem foot, or you just don’t have one, give this method a try.
1. Turn up the hem edge ¼ inch. Press and machine stitch along the fold.
2. Trim away the excess fabric in the hem allowance close to the stitching.
3. Turn up the hem again. Press and machine stitch along the fold.
