Applications


Blind Hemming

Use a Blind Hem Foot (additional accessory for some machine models) in conjunction with your machine's blind hem stitch to sew hems that are virtually invisible from the right side of the fabric. This blind hem stitch is designed for use with woven (non-stretch) fabrics. For information on how to sew a blind hem, see this video.

Blind Stitch Applique

The blind hem stitch can be used to attach appliques. The applique fabric edge is turned under and pressed, then secured to the main fabric with fusible web or temporary fabric spray adhesive. Select the blind hem stitch. For machines with adjustable stitch length and stitch width, set the stitch width to about 1.0 - 1.5mm, and the stitch length to a medium setting. Sew around the applique so the "straight" part of the stitch falls just outside the applique edge, and the longer part of the stitch sews just over the fabric fold. Use thread in a color that matches as closely as possible to the applique fabric color for a nearly invisible stitch.

Decorative Stitching

Use this stitch to embellish your sewing projects with a single row, multiple rows, or even in combination with other decorative stitches. Experiment with various types of thread such as rayon thread, all-purpose thread, metallic thread, topstitching thread, or even 30wt and 12wt cotton. Use a needle that is appropriate for the type of thread you are using. It is also helpful to use a stabilizer to help support the stitches. Learn more about needles and stabilizer on the SINGER website.

Couching

Create interesting surface embellishment using the blind hem stitch to sew over lightweight cords, yarns or trims. For machines with adjustable stitch width, choose a stitch width setting that is wide enough to cover the trim, without actually stitching into the trim. It can also be helpful to use an Open Toe Foot (additional accessory for some machine models), which provides a clear area in front of the needle as you sew. Use a slow speed and take your time for maximum control.
