Scallop Stitch

Scallop Stitch

The Scallop Stitch is a decorative stitch that could be sewn alone or combined with rows of other stitches to create unique embellishments.  It can also be used for edge finishing – after the stitch is sewn, trim away excess fabric outside the scallops.





Scallop Hems

Use this decorative stitch to add a scalloped hem to projects like table linens, children's clothing, and much more. Select the scallop decorative stitch. For machines with adjustable stitch width and stitch length, set the stitch width to its widest setting and the stitch length to a short setting so that you don't see fabric between the stitches. Use a Satin Stitch Foot (additional accessory for some machine models), which will allow the dense stitching to pass freely underneath the foot. Use a wash-away or very light tear-away stabilizer under the fabric. Sew the stitch, then remove the stabilizer. Use a fine point scissor to trim away excess fabric, leaving a scallop hem at the edge.



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 stabilizer on the SINGER website.


Attaching Trims

Use this decorative stitch to attach ribbons and trims. It's an easy way to embellish projects. It is helpful to use an Open Toe Foot (additional accessory for some machine models), which provides a clear view of the sewing area. For machines with adjustable stitch length and stitch width, set the stitch length and stitch width according to the look you want for your project.
