We recently showed you how to use a baby hem with a straight-stitch. Now we are going to show you with a zig-zag. You can use a zig-zag baby hem for decorative reasons, but it can also be a better choice if you hemming a curve in a lightweight fabric. There is more give in the stitch for going around the curves. The look is similar to using a pearl stitch on your overlock machine.
