Clear Piping Foot H4130971-45

Posted by Debbie Lomas
Piping is a great way to add detail, a pop of colour, contrast, or texture to any sewing project. Piping gives an opportunity to draw attention to design elements and accentuate seamlines, transforming the simplest piece of clothing into a professional looking made garment.

What is piping? Piping is a trim, made with a bias-cut strip of fabric, folded over cord. Piping thickness can vary by using different thicknesses of cord. Very petite piping is usually used for garments such as babies’ clothes, while thick piping is generally used on upholstery items. Piping is also sometimes referred to as cording or welting.
Piping can be purchased ready made from your local sewing store, or if you cannot find one to match, you may prefer to make your own to get the exact look you want. Making and inserting piping has never been so easy, than with the range of piping feet from Husqvarna Viking.

The piping foot has a distinct groove under the foot, which holds the cord in place while you sew. The needle is then positioned to stitch next to the cord, giving precise stitching when sewing. The Piping Foot can be used to create your own binding, or to insert binding in between two layers of fabric, for a tailored finish. Custom finish binding with a top stitch, by opening seam and pressing fabric to wrong side. Adjust needle to desired position and sew.
There are three Piping feet of this style in the range to cater for your specific needs of sewing!

If your preference is to sew with a metal foot, then the Piping foot is right for you!

Mini Piping Foot H4131830-45

The groove underneath the Mini Piping foot is smaller than the Piping Foot or Clear Piping Foot. This allows you to sew piping with a finer cord, on garments such as babies’ clothes.
