Welcome to another edition of Fabulous Foot Friday keeping on the same subject of edgestitching/topstitching.
Here is the first presser foot I ever purchased: The Edge Stitching Foot
My sewing instructor introduced me to this when I first started learning to sew. I was working on a pair of toddler overalls that had TONS of topstitching. I LOVED using this foot. My stitching came out perfectly straight and I was a newbie. This is fantastic for edgestitching because you can get so close to the edge ( On my machine I just move the needle over). It is also teriffic for sewing multiple rows. Just set the guide along another row of stitching, a seam (pictured below), or edge (pictured below) and the result is a perfect parallel line of stitching. How cool is that?!
I know that this foot is similar to last weeks feature foot (the Left Edge Topstitching Foot) but I wanted to show the different options available. Some of you might really like having a guide that you can run along and not have to line up the edge with the red dot. The Edge Stitching Foot can be more precise and easier to use because of the guide on the side. I use both feet at different times so I like having both options.
If any of you have a foot like this and love it for a specific application please let me know. I love to know new ways to use my feet and improve my creativity options and I am sure that other would love to glean from your creativity also.
Again, this is a Viking foot but I know that this also can be found for other machine types. It is a fairly standard option.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Have a great day! Until next time...
