Janome Piping Foot

How to make your own piping

You can use the Janome Piping Foot to make your own custom piping. You can use either a purchased bias strip, or cut your own strip of fabric. It can be either straight of grain, or biased.

  • •  Place your cording in the center of the fabric, then wrap the fabric around it
  • •  With the piping foot on the machine, move the needle to a left position, so it just barely clears the needle-hole
  • •  Hand-crank the needle to make sure it will safely clear the hole in the foot
  • •  Feed the encased cording in to the groove on the underside of the foot
  • •  Choose a straight stitch and sew down the side of the encased cord to create your own custom piping.
