When you come to the end of the row of stitches, engage the backstitch function of your machine. Backstitching prevents the seam from unraveling.

Backstitch functions vary widely between machines and can come in the form of buttons, levers, and knobs. See your sewing machine manual for instructions on your backstitch function.

Depress the pedal slowly. Sew two or three stitches backwards. Release the pedal and disengage the backstitch function.
