Basically this a tutiorial for how to use the hemmer foot attachment on a sewing machine, but since it’s no fun if you’re not actually making something, we’ll be making a basket liner. Since it’s just hemming straight lines with no corners, it’s definitely one of the easiest things to make when you’re first learning the hemmer foot. Once you got that down, you can use the hemmer foot for more difficult things. The hemmer foot is so much easier than turning the hem by hand and the hemmer foot gives it a much thinner, more precise hem. The machine and the hemmer foot do all the work. You just have the feed the material through the scroll on the hemmer foot.
A basket liner is nice because it always comes in handy. Anytime you want to spruce up what you’re setting in a basket, a nicely hemmed peice of calico will do the trick. We use these in all our baskets on our produce stand and on our tables at the market. They really add a cute touch to everything.
