Quick Tip Tuesday: Add a snazzy detail to knit hems

If you routinely hem knit garments using your sewing machine, consider combining several stitches to achieve a custom hem finish. In the example below, there are 2 rows of straight stitching on either side of a triple zig-zag stitch. Pretty, and very unique! Try experimenting with the various stitch options on your sewing machine to see what you can create!

    This is brilliant, thank you!

  3. That’s really cute and chic Maris. How do you allow the straight stitch to have some give? Do you stretch it a little as you sew?
