Note - the dotted line is only to show that the hem is folded under. Serging should be done at the edge that has the fold and the raw edge.
When making pillowcases or similar items with the serger there is a easy quick way to hem them without going to the sewing machine.
1. Fold under the hem and press (wrong sides together - as usual).
2. Now fold the other way so that right sides are together. There should be a raw edge and a folded edge. Note - do not press.
3. Notch to start and serge all the way around and you will have a banded type hem.
This is quick, easy and looks quite nice!
This quick hem method can be used for lots of other projects as well, give it a try and see how much you like it.
