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.

Applique

This decorative stitch can be used to sew appliques. It will take some experimenting on scrap fabric to find the exact settings you want for your applique. Set the width at a medium setting to start, and adjust from there. Use an Open Toe Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) which can be helpful because it provides a clear view of the sewing area. The right side of the stitch should hug the outside edge of the applique, and the horizontal stitches should then stitch into the applique itself.

Heirloom Sewing

This stitch is commonly used for heirloom sewing and vintage style projects. These stitches look best when sewn on lightweight fabrics such as organdy, organza, or batiste. It is helpful to prepare the fabric with fabric spray starch and press it so it has more "body", as the stitch is dense and also usually sewn on a single layer of fabric. Use a SINGER Hemstitching Needle (additional accessory), which helps create small "holes" in the fabrc as you sew. Use a lightweight thread in the needle and bobbin, as all-purpose thread will be too thick and the holes created by the wing needle won't show as well. An Open Toe Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) can be helpful because it provides a clear view as you sew. Press again when finished.
