Behind the Stitch: Blind Hem Stitch

What is a blind hem stitch? Do you know how to stitch a blind hem? Get the answers you're looking for about the blind hem stitch -- including a short video demonstration to teach you the basics.

What is the Blind Hem Stitch?

The blind hem is a series of stitches -- several small and one large V -- that attach a hem to the inside of a garment.

The uppermost part of the large V stitch creates a small dot on the right side of the garment, while the rest of the stitches are attached to the hem alone.

The blind hem stitch provides a near invisible hem for a much more elegant finish than a topstitch. It's another trick to add to your growing list of sewing techniques!

The Blind Hem Foot for the Baby Lock Molly takes all the guess work on positioning your fabric for hemming. Every couple of stitches the blind hem stitch takes a little bite to the left so your hem is almost invisible. Hem projects quickly and professional with the Baby Lock Molly.

What project can you use the blind hemming foot on next? As for me, I enjoy making fun pillowcase dresses for the kids in our family. The next round I make will certainly have a blind hem!
