Blind Stitch Instructions for a Singer Sewing Machine

Save

Blind stitch, also known as a blind hem stitch, is a sewing technique that creates a nearly invisible hem. Though it looks complicated, the skill is easy to master and an efficient way of hemming countless projects. Singer Sewing Machines make the task every easier with a special stitch and foot.

Things You'll Need

  • Sewing machine
  • Blind hem foot
  • thread
  • Attach the blind hem foot by snapping it onto the presser foot rod.

  • Thread the sewing machine with a thread that closely matches the color of fabric to be sewn. This will ensure the most invisible hem possible.

  • Fold the raw hem back to the proper hem length.

  • Fold the project fabric back from the hem so that 1/8 of an inch of the raw hem is showing. The hemmed fabric will be on the bottom with the exposed 1/8 inch emerging to one side. The remaining fabric will be on top and pulled away from the raw edge of the hem.

  • Insert the raw hem edge under the presser foot. You will be sewing mostly on the raw hem fabric with only every fourth or fifth stitch zigzagging over to catch the project fabric.

  • Sew a few stitches to ensure the zigzag stitch is just catching the project fabric. If it is not, adjust as needed.

  • Finish the stitch with a locking stitch or backwards/forwards stitch as you would a normal sewing fabric.
