Yang Yu Hong on Instagram: "2 Quick Overlocker Tricks  1 - Instant Hemming  With the wrong side of your fabric facing up, roll your hem to your mark then roll it back on itself (to create a Z or S shape depending on how you look at it).  Overlock the three layers together, give the seam a good press and you’re done!  2 - Increased Gathers  With your overlocker in the gather setting and at maximum stitch length, run the edge of your fabric through.  The initial gathers are done, but if you wanted to increase the gathering, find the middle thread of the stitch and pull it from one side to intensify the gather effect!  Hope these tips helped, and as always, happy sewing!  #sewing #fashiondesigner #sewingtips #upcycling #sewsewsew #fashiondesign" Tela, Threaded Running Stitch, Couture, How To Sew Edges Of Fabric By Hand, How To Serger Without A Serger, Overlock Stitch On Sewing Machine, Sewing Hem Hacks, Overlocker Projects, Serger Sewing Projects

Sew Essential sewing supplies on Instagram: "A quick, neat way to sew a hem plus curved hem bonus sewing tip.   Sewing patterns will often tell you to sew a narrow hem by pressing the fabric under and under again, but this method is less bulky and a lot quicker.   Finish the raw edge of your fabric with your overlocker then press up and stitch down to secure. You can even use the overlocker stitches as a guide for pressing and sewing depending on how deep you want it.  Bonus sewing tip - for curved hems knock your differential feed up a notch to compress the fabric slightly and ease the curve in neatly.  #sewingtips #overlockertips #hemming #howtosew #learntosew" Sewing Lessons, Sewing Basics, Sewing Tips, Sewing Hems, Sewing Courses, Square Dance, Sewing Tutorial, Learn To Sew, Sewing Supplies
