  • -Sew the first row of patterns.
  • -Align the first row between the guidelines A and B, (A is the inside line B is the outside line), and sew the next row.
  • -Align the two rows with the guidelines A, and then sew the next row.

Piping Foot (I)

If readymade piping cord is not available or if you just want to make your own, the piping foot is ideal for the job. The piping foot (sometimes mistakenly referred to as the cording foot) is designed with two grooves on the underside and will hold and cover the cord when making piping tape. It can also be used for attaching piping. Maximum cord size is 5mm.

How to use the Piping foot:

  1. Raise the needle and the piping foot.
  2. Insert the corded piping tape between two pieces of fabric (right sides together) and place them under the foot. Make sure the edge of the tape is aligned with the edge of the fabric.
  3. Lower the foot so that the corded part of the tape fits in the left groove on the bottom of the foot.
  4. Sew the fabric while guiding the piping into the left groove.

    * The right groove can be used for making piping tape.
