Braiding is anolher means of producing ornamental work on garments. curtains and the like and consists of applying narrow braid by means of a straight slilch. 47a 48 . Another advantage of Ihis procedure is Ihe absence of any contour lines of Ihe design after the superfluous material has been cut away. Our advice is to guide the material and braid so that the needle will always slilch in the center of the braid following the lines of design. while the design should be drawn on the wrong side. In this manner Illustr. 36.The figure or design 10 be appliqued should be eilher basled or pinned 10 Ihe righl side of the material. 47 Illustr.

56 Important: For ordinary sewing work after having finished buttonholing. apply a piece of tissue paper underneath and remove this carefully after the bullonholes are completed.Important: If the bulionholes are on very thin and flimsy fabrics. Another means 10 increase the firmness 01 the buttonhole is the use of a filler thread which is guided through the small hole in the prong of the presser foot. IlIustr.

Bartacking and galloons The buttonhole foot is also made for bartacking on pockets as well as for galloons. a thread is guided through the tube in the foot and overseamed with close zigzag stitches. For bariacking.

Hemstitching For hemstilehing apply hinged foot No 44088. in the material. and do a few straight stitches to guard against unravelling. After the last stileh has been made. To complete the operation the zigzag stitch should now be applied to both edges of the 60 . leave needle at the right. When the 4 hole button is sewn on. The needle should not be stronger than size 70 or 80. A soft embroidery or darning thread is recommended for this type of work. varying with the grade of material. It is important that the zigzag stileh be adjusted according to the distance hom hand in order to ensure the correct spacing of the needle to avoid breakage of needle points.5. It is advisable that 4 or 5 stilehes be applied to each side of the button. Lower thread tension should be slightly tighter for beller effect. The length of the stitch is selected according to the design used in gathering the hemstitching. Now set the widfh of the zigzag stitch on 2 or 2. simply move the material backward with the button and repeat operation as above. 59 hole to hole. Begin by drawing a number of threads in fhe desired width between the two lines which will form the spacing of the hemstileh. 41. For added strength we suggest that a few ordinary straight stilehes be applied directly inlo the hole position.

60. To do more creative designs in hemstitching work. we advise that one side be sewn and the material reversed and the same method be applied to the other side. Since the stitches have to be applied in opposite direciion. as shown in illustr. 61 . numerous patterns can be prouced by varying the spacing and tying the bundles of thread.distance created in the 'spacing of the threads which were pulled.
