How to Use a Side Cutter (Cut and Hem) Foot

written by Sarah February 27, 2013

If you don’t own a Serger (overlock machine) but want to hem and trim simultaneously, check out the Side Cutter (Cut and Hem) Foot. This foot is basically an Overcast foot with a cutting blade similar to a serger blade. Use an overcast stitch for woven fabric or the zigzag stitch for knits. Happy Sewing!

I purchased the Singer Side Cutter Pressure foot to use because I didn’t want to spend $400+ on a serger, however after purchasing the Attachment foot I came across a comment you left on a previous reviewer (Ellen) and went to the page and notice my Singer Tradition 2250 computer wasn’t in the “guaranteed” List and I just want to let you know it works perfect for my sewing machine. Thank you sooooo much for this attachment foot, it literally save me a bunch of $$$…I got mine for just $34 CAD on Amazon.ca. :-):-) :-)…..I couldn’t be any happier….:-)

Hi Jangi! Thanks for letting us know that it works with your machine! So glad the foot has worked well for you!

I have an older Wards Signature 276D, is it possible that it would work
on my old machine. Thanks for your help! BJ

Hi BJ! I can’t guarantee that the side cutter foot will fit your machine. If it’s a low shank, it could possibly work, but I’m not 100% sure.

Do you know which side cutter foot will work with singer 9960.

Sarah June 18, 2015 at 8:25 am

Hi Ivy! I’ve looked around and it doesn’t appear there is a side cutter foot guaranteed to fit the Singer 9960. I’m very sorry!

Well I sure will be buying from you guys that low shank side cutter because Brother wants 63.00!!

Good grief! And we appreciate your business! =D

When you used the Singer side cutter foot I think you said you were using it on your Singer sewing machine. I have a Brother low shank machine and wondered if it will work on a Brother machine. Thanks

Hi Barb! The side cutter foot in this video didn’t work well with my Brother sewing machine. However, this one works excellently with a brother machine: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/low-shank-side-cutter-sa177.aspx
