Description

This braiding foot for Husqvarna Viking sewing machines is the perfect sewing machine part to reach for whenever you want to add some extra flair to your sewing project. If you’re in a creative rut, or just don’t want your sewing to look like everyone else’s, then this is the perfect little foot to help you add some really unique touches to your work.

So, what does a braiding foot do, you ask? Have you seen fabric beautifully decorated with braids, cords, and even strings of little sequins? That may well have been done with a braiding foot’s help. This snap-on foot has a hole in the centre before the needle hole for feeding through braids or cords. They are then passed through a little tunnel leading right for the needle, allowing you to stitch them securely in place with perfect precision.

Snap-on feet like this one are quick and easy to change out. Just snap off the foot currently on your machine, and then, with a gentle click, snap on your new braiding foot. Then grab your cord and you are ready to decorate! Before you start on something important, I would recommend that you do a little test run to make sure everything’s moving smoothly, that you feel confident with how to move your fabric and cord without catching it around your hand and that you have picked the best stitch to hold it in place.

Now, let’s talk stitches. You can either select threads that blend in with your cord or one in a contrasting colour that adds an artistic touch of its own. A zigzag stitch is a classic choice – it’ll hold it nicely secure and it’s easy to sew with. Some flatter braids may look better with a straight stitch whereas more rounded cords may look flattened or distorted with a straight stitch so a wider stitch that hugs it rather than pierces through it usually looks better. Decorative stitches can add some real fun, just keep in mind the width and length of your stitch versus the size of your braid; have a play and see what looks fun!

All that twisting and turning making pretty patterns with cords can make a fabric distort and be difficult to hold at the same tension throughout, so a good tip here is to hoop your fabric or use stabiliser underneath your fabric to prevent puckering if you want a really pro finish. Practice makes perfect, so don’t be afraid to play around with scraps of fabric and different braids. You can always use your favourite ones as block centres for a patchwork project with a really creative unique look.

What projects can you use the braiding foot for? Anything that needs embellishing! It can be as creative as you are! Use it to add a braided touch to a funky clutch bag or to give a plain cushion some pizzazz with a sparkly border. Maybe decorate a book cover for a real sensory feel or turn some boring plain clothes with some show-stopping swirls.

So, the next time you’re itching to jazz up your sewing projects, we hope you’ll remember this little sewing machine foot and let the braiding bonanza begin!
