Using the Join and Fold Edging Foot

Create beautiful edgings on garment and décor by using the Join and Fold Edging Foot. Combine fabric together with different types of edging, such as lace, embroidered trims or various fabrics, along with the beautiful stitches to make these one-of-a-kind edges. Make lingerie in a snap, add lace to create beautiful handkerchiefs or delicate table toppers. This foot will easily guide the edging and the base fabric through the openings in the front of the foot, fold the base fabric and simultaneously sew the edging in place.

Instructions for use: 

  1. Thread your sewing machine with regular sewing or decorative thread through the needle and regular sewing thread in the bobbin.
  2. Select the stitch you would like to use. For example: the edging could be sewn onto the base fabric using a straight stitch and a 4mm twin needle or a right-justified wide decorative stitch. Note: Decorative stitches that use forward motion work best. (Avoid stitches with too much backward motion.)
  3. Fold a 6mm ( ¼”) hem of base fabric to the wrong side, then finger press or iron.
  4. Insert the folded edge of base fabric with the right side up into the left fabric guide, and the edging (right side up) into the right guide. Slide the folded fabric edge and the edging into the foot, prior to attaching the foot onto the sewing machine.
  5. Make sure the base fabric and the edging slide easily through the openings. 6. Snap on the Join and Fold Edging Foot to the sewing machine.
  6. Sew carefully, not too fast. If your machine has a speed control, reduce the sewing speed to easily guide the fabric and edging as you sew. Hold the fabric in your left hand and the edging in your right hand and sew.
