This next hemming technique, hemming stitch,
is called a slip stitch, or a blind hem. And what’s unique about this one is that you can
get it to be almost invisible on both sides. On the front side and on the back side. So
once again what we want to do is start inside of our hem. Put the–and then, we’re going
to go right up next to it, pick up a thread or two, on–above the–above the fold. And
then we go right back down, and then the needle kind of follows that fold, so it hides in
And then right above it–right above it, we pick up a thread or two again. And then, right below it, we want to go back
into that–that fold. So I’m taking up my–I’m moving lengthwise as I’m in that fold, not
while I’m on the outside, and that’s going to–that’s the trick to keeping it invisible,
And then right above it, once again picking up a few. Okay. And then right below it, go
drop your needle into that fold, and then move along lengthwise through that fold. Whoops.
And, so there we go. What you’re going to have is, as you can see, you have it stuck
together, but you can’t really see thread very much here, and you can’t see thread on
the other side. And that’s the goal, that’s the blind hem.
