Piping Cording Foot (Video)
I love the piping cording presser foot! I find it very easy to work with and incredibly versatile. In fact, I never use a regular zipper foot or even an invisible zipper foot when sewing… I use a piping cording presser foot instead — I find it so much easier to use and more precise.

So this is a piping and cording foot, and it’s intended to be used to sew in piping or cording, but I like to use it to sew in a zipper or an invisible zipper.
Now the great thing about this presser foot is that the ends are so super narrow that it allows you to get really, really close to those zipper teeth. Especially when you’re sewing an invisible zipper, when you have to go right in that groove, which you know is tricky to do.
So all you have to do is attach it to your machine, and then unscrew the back and slide the foot so that it’s up exactly where you want it to be.
You’re going to lower your needle into your machine. That’s what I like to do; lower the needle first. Then butt the presser foot right up against the needle so that it’s close to but not touching the needle. And you can actually use your hand wheel to raise your needle up and down; just to make sure it’s not going to touch or hit the presser foot.
Once it’s exactly in place, tighten the screw, and you’re ready to go.
So give this a try. The next time you’re sewing a zipper or an invisible zipper, try a piping or cording foot and let me know what you think.
