Elastic Foot

The Elastic foot guides and stretches narrow elastic ¼”-½”, (6-12 mm) as you sew it to fabric. It is great for sewing for active wear, lingerie and other elastic insertion techniques.

How to use the Elastic foot:

  1. Set the overlock machine for the desired stitch.
  2. Loosen the screw at the front of the Elastic foot to release the tension on the roller. Insert the
    elastic into the foot.
  3. Snap on the foot and pull the elastic until it reaches behind the foot.
  4. Tighten the tension screw to stretch the elastic.
  5. Turn the handwheel to sew the first few stitches to secure the elastic.
  6. Place the fabric under the foot and sew both the elastic and the fabric together.
  7. Check the stitch and adjust the tension if necessary.

Note: To adjust the stretch of the elastic:

  • Turn the tension screw to the right for more stretch.
  • Turn the screw to the left for less stretch.
  • Be careful not to stretch the fabric while sewing.

Suitable for Coverlock 3.0 and 4.0, Hobbylock 2.5
