Free Tutorial: How to Sew with Knits Part III: Sewing hems

Love 'em or hate 'em, hems are a fact of life when sewing garments! Although most knit fabrics do not fray - and sometimes you won't want to or need to hem - there are also times when a design calls for a finished hem. Today we'll learn how to sew hems with knits.

If you haven't seen the other parts of the "How to Sew with Knits" series and want to get started sewing with knits, please see "Part I: Getting Started!" that teaches how to choose and lay out your knits and patterns, and "Part II: Sewing Seams with Knits", which will take you through the basics of sewing.

You can read "Sewing Hems on Knit Fabrics" through the Google Viewer (photos are more clear once you've downloaded from the viewer) and get started practicing! If you have a garment ready to hem, practice on a scrap piece of the same fabric first, to be sure you'll get the results you want.

If your browser isn't compatible with the Google Viewer and you're having trouble retrieving "Sewing Hems on Knit Fabrics," feel free to download the tutorial from the Internet.
