Three ways top use the zig-zag stitch
(from www.weallsew.com) The zigzag is an incredibly versatile stitch with both utilitarian and decorative applications. Here are 3 ways to use the zigzag stitch in your sewing projects.
Utilitarian Zigzag Stitch: The zigzag stitch has many utilitarian uses. It can be used to seam or hem knit fabrics, encase raw seam edges, attach trim or lace, and more. To make the most of your zigzag when using any utilitarian stitch, be sure to use the right style and size of needle, and pair this with the correct style and diameter thread.
Seam Edge Finish with the Zigzag Stitch: Finishing the raw edges of a seam with a zigzag stitch can add strength and keep raw edges from unraveling due to normal wear. To achieve a nice, flat zigzag stitch without puckering or tunneling, use an Overlock type foot.
Zigzag Satin Stitch: When you dial down the stitch length on a zigzag stitch, a dense set of stitches is created that makes a solid looking line—otherwise known as the satin stitch. This stitch can be used for edging, decorative stitching, and securing appliqué shapes. Because there is more bulk in a satin stitch than with an open zigzag, you need a different tool to help form a perfect stitch. An embroidery type foot is ideal for a satin stitch. When creating a zigzag satin stitch, be sure to stabilize your fabric or project to keep the satin stitch from tunneling or puckering. To avoid a heavy buildup of thread on the wrong side of the fabric, use a lightweight bobbin thread and decrease the upper thread tension for balance. The upper thread should show along the sides of the stitch on the bottom
