Sewing Tip How to create a Scallop Stitch on your sewing machine


In this tutorial I’m going to show you
how to create a scallop stitch. Every single Wednesday I show you how to use
your sewing machine and simple sewing tips and tricks. For this scallop
stitch I have selected stitch 40 we do need foot N, just so you know you
can invert these stitches rights here you can mirror it so you can have it
going in the other direction and let me show you by pressing this button here so
it changes the direction of the stitch and we’ll leave it exactly how it was. I
also have this cool variegated thread in my reel I just wanted to see what these
scalloped stitches is going to look like it changes color over time it’s pretty
cool I have used a stabilizer on my fabric a spray starch so it’s just
giving it a little bit of a firmer finish to my fabric so when I put these
stitches through its not going to pucker on these decorative stitches I will also
use like a tearaway stabilizer let’s do it on both examples just to see what it
ends up looking like so this is just spray starch only and I’ll run the
stitch through so don’t do it right on the edge of the fabric come a little bit
of the way in always test on a scrap piece before you do it on any
handkerchief or your final product just make a test run. So I’m going to start the
scallops here and I’m gonna keep it on a medium setting and I’m going to let these
scallops run through and don’t forget on your machine you will have a button that
you press to make sure you get one complete scallop so I’m just going to stop
here and I’m going to press that button so we make sure we get one complete
decorative stitch now the button your going to press, this button here does like
one heart and then two so if you look here this is the, it’s
going to continue stitching over and over again so when I press this button
and now it’s going to finish this one scallop and it’s going to stop right at
the end so it takes the guesswork out for you. So i’m going to press the
accelerator down, you’re going to see it stop, there you go that is the end of the
scallop so this is what the scallop looks like so we obviously want to cut
right at the bottom here to create the finished look. So let’s get our nice pair
of sharp scissors and just start cutting along the bottom there but don’t cut
into the stitches. So I won’t complete this all on camera and I will just finish
up myself and come back and show you what this looks like so this is what a
scalloped stitch looks like we’ve no tearaway stabilizer just a spray
stabilizer I’m going to try it now to see what it’s like with a tear away.
So i have everything all setup I have my tearaway underneath I’m going to see if it makes any
difference. Let’s have it going here keep it at a steady speed so you can try
and keep it in a straight line and I have that variegated thread still in my
machine now I’m just going to press that button again just to catch that last
scallop. Oh that was perfect timing and I’m just going to start cutting away and
I’ll let you see what I’m done The tearaway didn’t have any difference on
how the overall effects looks however it did help when you were cutting around
the scallops it helps to keep the fabric a lot more firmer as you cut around
those scallops. I hope you’ve enjoyed watching this tutorial, don’t forget to
