|Attaching entredeux and lace to fabric|
I have used several techniques over the years and often times it depends on what I am making in which way I sew entredeux and lace to fabric. I, no doubt have other methods I used posted within this blog from years back that may
or may not be this same method.
Step 1: Lay entredeux on fabric right sides together and straight stitch
|Make sure your stitching is smack dab next to the entredeux!|
|Once stitched, it should look like this!|
Step 2: Take to your ironing board and press.
|Press so that seam selvage falls on fabric side, not towards entredeux|
Fold back out and trim seam to 1/8".
|Using a rotary cutter gives you a cleaner edge!|
Step 3: Set your machine to zig-zag, 3W and 1.70L
|As you stitch, you should get a perfect rolled hem!|
Once stitching is complete you should have a nice neat edge,
finished off with a rolled hem!
Step 4: Press again, then clip away fabric from the entredeux
|Be careful not to cut into the satin edge of the entredeux!|
I have found that the best "stitch'n ditch" to use is cheap 1-ply toilet tissue
and I always keep a roll on my sewing table!
|yes! that is toilet tissue!!|
Bernina foot #10 - if you have another brand machine, you should have a foot
similar to this, where there is a blade in the center.
|there really is a blade there!|
Using a zig-zag stitch, with the same settings as above, you will
line up the edge of the entredeux and lace between the blade.
|Needle should swing back and forth from entredeux to lace!|
As you stitch, the entredeux and lace will be joined together
with a neat zig-zag stitch
|Needle should go into the open hole of the entredeux|
|All done and so pretty!|
Remove the tissue - any paper residue should easily come off,
otherwise will be washed away when garment is washed.
Completed entredeux to lace - it's as easy as that!
|It's just THAT easy!|
