The blind hem stitch is one of the most popular hidden stitches. When you use it to hem the bottom of your drapes or a pair of pants, it gives your project a professional finish because it's virtually invisible.

A blind hem is sewn by folding and pressing the hem and then folding it back close to where you want to sew the seam. Then you sew along the wrong side of your fabric, using the flange on the foot to guide you along the fold.

The Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G makes it easy to create beautiful blind hems. And it has an adjustable flange so you can determine how close to the edge you want to make your stitch.

How To Create A Blind Hem

  1. First, using the standard foot on your machine, finish the raw edge of your hem by folding it over and sewing with a straight stitch.
  2. Snap on the Blind Hem Foot G.
  3. Choose the appropriate blind hem stitch for the type of fabric your project requires.
  4. Once you've measured your hem, fold your fabric again so that your initial fold is just showing.
  5. Place the edge of your fold against the flange and sew. You can adjust the stitch width to minimize the bite.
  6. Sew your blind hem seam.


When you're finished you have a true blind hem.
