Weaving Tutorial: Woven Hemstitch Finish (With Video) - A Pretty Fix

If you are new to weaving, then one of the (numerous!) questions you’ve probably asked yourself is how you can finish your handwoven piece with a simple edge.

Benefits of Using a Hemstitch Finish There are a few benefits to using a simple woven hemstitch finish for a wall weaving: 1. It will prevent your weft (horizontal rows of yarn) from sliding up or down your warp (vertical threads) by securing the edges. 2. It will prevent your warp at the top end of your wall weaving from pulling in different directions once you’ve added your dowel (Kate from The Weaving Loom demonstrates this at the top of her post here). 3. It creates a subtle, yet pretty design feature along the edges of your weaving. How To Create a Hemstitch Finish In the photo below, I’ve already finished the top edge using the hemstitch. Here’s a closer look at the finished edge. Okay, so […]
