I have a stitch on my sewing machine that I used to use before I got my serger. It kind of looks like a lattice IXXI. It's one of the fancy stitches. It works pretty good but is way slower. You can also zigzag to finish off edges.

Yes. there is a foot that is made for the machine that cuts as you finish the edge. I'm not sure what it is called but almost any dealer should know the name of the foot. I've heard from some that it is trash but I've heard from a few happy campers that it is a great foot. I don't know how well the blade holds up!
