Saree hemming

Saree hemming

Just finishing up the embroidery on 48 aprons with the Cross and Flame for the Manchaca UMC Child Development Center. Now trying my hand at hemming Sarees for a lady from India. This work is very rewarding for its diversity!

The hem needed to be invisible on the right side of the fabric. I used black 60 wt thread in the bobbin and clear monofilament thread on top with the blind hem stitch. For the other hems, I’ll do a rolled hem with Bernina foot 63.
