  • Find the settings on your machine to sew a blind stitch. Depending on your sewing machine, variations of a machine blind stitch may be available. I strongly recommend making fake hems in scraps of fabric to perfect machine blind stitching before you blind stitch a garment or item.
  • Place the hem side down on the sewing machine bed. Roll back the body of the garment to expose the inside edge of the hem.
  • Sew so that the needle swing, catches a thread or two of the rolled back fabric.
  • Set a seam guide to keep the straight sewing on the hem and the rolled back fabric stays evenly in place.
  • Rather than back stitch, leave a tail when you start and stop sewing. Tie the tails together to knot the thread.
