Feather Stitch

Feather Stitch

The Feather Stitch can be used decoratively as well as for elastic insertion.


Feather Stitch



Elastic Insertion

Insert elastic into your projects easily by sewing over the elastic with this stitch, sometimes called the Feather Stitch. For elastic that is 1/4" - 3/8" wide, place the elastic through the opening of the All-Purpose Foot. This will help keep the elastic from slipping from left to right as you sew. Hold the elastic from in front and in back of the presser foot, stretching the elastic as you do so.

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.

Crazy Patch Quilting

Use this decorative stitch to embellish seams on quilt tops. For a bold appearance, try 30wt or 12wt cotton in the needle. At the end of a row of stitching, instead of reverse stitching, bring thread tails to the back side using a hand sewing needle, then tie to secure.
