A blind hem is exactly what it sounds like： a hem with stitches you can barely see. It's perfect for window coverings， the hem at the bottom of a garment， or anywhere you want a clean finished edge. When I first started sewingcustom christmas gifts， attaining a perfect blind hem was like finding the Holy Grail. And then a funny thing happened， I practiced it a few times， and realized it was really easy. It's sort of like learning to use chopsticks – at first it seems so awkward and difficult and then， suddenly， it's second nature. Try a blind hem and you'll never drop a wad of sticky rice in your lap again. This is one of our most popular techniques ever on Sew4Home； so much so， we try to re-run it at least once a year in order to stamp out the fear of blind hems for both new and returning visitors.？navy nursery pillow
First， you will need a blind hem foot. This is a special foot that comes standard with most sewing machines. The？foot shown below is the 9mm Blind Hem foot that came with our Janome Skyline machine. Your presser foot version might be slightly different depending on the brand and/or model of your sewing machine.
Notice the black part in the middle of the foot (it may not be black on your machine's foot). It's called a "flange." This is your new word for the day； try to work it into a conversation. The flange acts as a guide. It will rest against the folded edge of the fabric as you sew， allowing you to maintain a straight seam and make sure the space between the main stitches and the blind stitches is accurate.
