HS101: Mock rolled hem by hand

  • Needle (size 10 crewel needle)
  • thread to match fabric this is a regular weight 100% cotton sewing thread
  • fabric 
How to:
  • Clean up edge by trimming off all ravels
  • turn the raw edge to the wrong side (1/8 inch) (actual hem will be about 1/2 of this width that was pressed)
    • press well
    • press for rolled hem
  • Attach thread into the fabric fold (securing it well ie a knot)
  • Make tiny stitch into the garment just below the raw edge.  Go straight up and go into the fold travel for about 1/4 of an inch. * repeat this up and down motion in stitching.  You should have a series of parallel lines (threads) see photo
    • close up rolled hem
  • when you have made several of these make sure needle is in the fold in the top and pull the thread to close the opening.  This will form a tiny rolled hem.
    • rolled hem simi close up
    • rolled hem
