Surprise!! I am a new face on the Amelia Lane Designs blog today. I am Sequoia and I blog at https://sequoialynnsews.wordpress.com. Today, I am popping in as a guest blogger and video maker. You may have even seen my face a few times, as I also sew strikes for ALD!
I did a quick video showing how I create a rolled hem using my sewing machine.
A rolled hem is often used when sewing delicate fabrics such as a chiffon. It is perfect to finish edges of thin, lightweight wovens or even linen napkins. Today, I used it to finish the edge of a knit. This knit is a Double Brushed Poly and the part I am finishing is for a ruffle around a neckline. I love the look of a finished edge, but I HATE hemming long circle edges. I always seem to stitch in some wrinkles along the way. Well, if you do a rolled hem that won't be an issue.

Here is a close up of all of my ruffled goodness!
