Instructions

Use with a steam iron. Always test fabric sample for proper heat and moisture. Protect fabrics that water spot with a Dritz Press Cloth.

CAUTION: Ezy-Hem® 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.

  2. Move gauge along hem line and continue pressing.

CURVED HEMS:

  1. To ease hems, stitch 1/4 inch from raw edge, using a basting stitch.
  2. Turn up fabric along hem line, insert Ezy-Hem® Gauge. Using a pin, pull up stitches every few inches until hem lies flat; press.
