How To Use
The flower stitch foot consists of
a large ring base
a driver arm on the right
a foot clamp to attach the foot on your presser bar.
a small latch on the right that drives the base.
an adjustment screw on the back left
If you lift the latch, the base stops turning.
The adjustment screw on the back left allows you to slide the base from left to right to make circles in various sizes, move it towards the + sign to make bigger circles, move it to the - sign for smaller ones. The smallest circle you can make with it is ¼ inch, the biggest 1 inch in size.
For other models of sewing machines, please check whether the presser foot can be used according to the following:
Make sure the vertical height of the eye screw on the foot bar is less than 1.02 inch.
The length of screw road lock bar greater than 0.39 inch.
Loosen the thread or lower down the metal strip in the middle of the rotating disk when you encounter skipped stitching.
Not suitable for mini sewing machine, antique sewing machine and industrial sewing machine.
How To Install
Raise your needle to its highest position. Remove your standard presser foot & the presser foot holder. Just screw off the entire foot, not just the snap-on part.
To attach the flower foot, you slide the foot clamp around the presser bar and the presser foot screw. Make sure to place the driver arm above the needle holder and then securely tighten the presser foot screw.
Lower your feed dogs because the flower stitch foot does the transportation of your fabric.
Set your stitch length to 0. In fact the stitch length is irrelevant when using the flower foot because the feed dogs are lowered. The feed dogs guide the stitch length, they move more or less fabric for smaller or bigger stitches..
The stitch width does have an impact on the looks of your stitches, you can play with that but always test so your needle don’t hit the foot.
Don’t use too complex stitches. Maybe try a zigzag stitch, an over lock stitch, a blind hem stitch, an overcast stitch and a serpentine stitch to start.
Reduce the upper thread to a looser setting
Fabric, threads & needle
Use a sturdy fabric or glue some stabilizer to the fabric you want to decorate. Most fabrics will need a stabilizer. Using a stabilizer prevents thinner fabrics from puckering and ensures that your stitches look flat and look professional.
The stabilize you choose will depend on your fabric, but also the use and how dense you will stitch.
You can use all purpose thread but of course you can use machine embroidery thread and decorative threads as well.
The choice of your needle will depend on the thread and the fabric you’re using
Stitching with the flower stitch foot
When the foot is attached, you have chosen a stitch and your thread, bobbin and needle are in place, always walk the hand wheel through a couple of stitches to see if all is clear. Then bring the bobbin thread up to the top and start sewing until you get a circle.
Take the time to play with your flower stitch foot on some scraps to get used to it and see what result you get with the different stitches you have on your machine.
It can be a good idea to make a sample like the pictures below or you write down the designs you like while experimenting.
