Hems - 1/4 to 4" on a straight edge and 1/4 to 2-1/2" on a curved edge. Pockets, Pattern Alterations, Belt & Waistbands-turn and press edges. Patches & Appliques - turn and press edges before stitching in place. TIPS - Use with a steam iron. Always test fabric sample for proper heat and moisture. Protect fabrics that water spot with a Dritz Vue Thru Press Cloth. CAUTION - Ezy Hem Gauge may be hot while pressing. Attach a quilter's ruler handle to gauge for easy handling.
Press all hems from the fold up. This eliminates ridge marks on the right side of the fabric. STRAIGHT HEMS - Turn up fabric along hem line, insert Ezy-Hem Gauge and press. Move gauge along hem line and continue pressing. CURVED HEMS - To ease hems, stitch 1/4" from raw edge, using a basting stitch. Turn up fabric along hem line, insert Ezy-Hem Gauge. Using a pin, pull up stitches every few inches until hem lies flat, press.
