The rolled hem presser foot is just another amazing little device that makes my sewing life a million times easier. Using this sewing machine attachment makes hemming sheer and slippery fabrics an absolute breeze. The fabric takes very little preparation and the little foot does most of the work. Let’s dive in and learn how to sew a rolled hem.
Today, I’m hoping to share my technique to easily use this tool. I thought it would be fun to see how I perform on-screen, so….I recorded a little video tutorial. I discovered that I say “um” a lot and throw in a bunch of unnecessary pauses between my overly detailed babbling. But, I think it will give you a quick picture of how I get my special presser foot to work its magic for me. And I hope it helps you with your next tricky hem!!
Did you find the video helpful? I have a couple close up pictures below of the finished rolled hem.

Wanted to watch your video, but I’m not finding it?
Hi Bobbi! It’s up at the top of the post – I think there’s a rolling video with a bunch of other stuff that happens to load right above it, but look for the screen with the play button on it – there is typed text and then the video will play. Fair warning – this post and video are from 2013, so it’s not the most fancy video, but the info is still good. lol.
I enjoyed your tutorial on the rolled hem foot. I especially like the tip to fold and press the 1/8″ hem prior to beginning! I going to try this as I can at times get frustrated when there are small segments that aren’t fully enclosed
Does the needle need to be moved to the right for the presser foot to work? My needle isn’t catching the roll.
Hm, it’s possible for your particular machine/foot!

God bless you child! I have had this and did not know how to get it started and just lit that dull light bulb in my head
Thank you thank you 😊

Good video, with good info however the light from the machine itself, was too bright to see every detail. The still shots were very helpful and knowing that the presser foot headache while on it I’ll have to look for that for my machine.
Have you ever done a rolled hem on chiffon? How do you end a round hem?
