RicRac Stitch

The RicRac Stitch is a stitch that can be used alone or combined with other rows of stitching to create unique embellishments.

 

RICRAC STITCH

 

Applications


Decorative Stitching

Use this stitch to embellish your sewing projects with a single row, multiple rows, or even in combination with other decorative stitches. For machine models with adjustable stitch length and/or stitch width, try various stitch length and/or width adjustments to change the look of the stitch as desired. It may be helpful to use a Satin Stitch Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) for denser stitch settings, as this foot has a groove on the underside to allow stitches to pass freely underneath. Experiment with various types of thread such as rayon thread, all-purpose thread, metallic thread, topstitching thread, or even 30wt and 12wt cotton. Be sure to use a needle that is appropriate for the type of thread you are using, and stabilizer to help support the fabric and stitches. Learn more about needles and stabilizers on the SINGER website.

Couching

Use this decorative stitch, along with a Cording Foot, to add interesting surface dimension to your projects. The Cording Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) has grooves on top that help guide a thin yarn or cord as you stitch over it. The stitch "catches" the cord to secure to the fabric surface. Use a tear-away stabilizer underneath as you sew to help prevent fabric puckering.

Edge Joining

Two fabrics can be joined together using this decorative stitch. First, turn under and press the edge of both fabrics. An Edge Joining Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) can be used as a guide for the fabrics. Place the folded edges next to each other, one on each side of the foot's center guide, and place a piece of lightweight stabilizer underneath the area where they join. Select the length and width setting you want for your project. Sew across the area where the fabrics join, so the left movement of the needle sews on the left fabric, and the right movement of the needle sews on the right fabric. Remove the stabilizer when finished. Try using a topstitching thread and Topstitching Needle for a more bold appearance to the stitches.
