• BOX STITCH
See page 14.
Stitch length dia!
Box stitch is ideal for producing flat
overlapped seams on almost any type of
fabric and a bolder effect wilt result from
sewing with a contrasting thread.
Overlap the raw edges of two pieces of fabric
2" and pin or tack. Place the fabric right side
up with the middle of the overlap under the
center of the presser foot, so that the stitch
sews just over the top and bottom raw edges.
Turn the raw edge under 2" and press, Place
the fabric right side up with the middle of the
turnover under the center of the presser foot,
so that the stitch sews on to the fold and just
over the raw edge underneath.
