Ruffler Foot Made Sew Easy It's Hands Free!

If you've ever used a ruffler foot you will know you need to guide your fabric carefully.

I've been making a Victorian Gown. That means lots of ruffley goodness. I have about 150 meters of ribbon I'm using on this project most of which I've been pleating using my sewing machines ruffler foot. 
Carefully guiding that much yardage through would drive me insane!

I needed a way to make it easy and fast without needing a lot of concentration.

I needed to automate guiding that ribbon through.

It's so easy and simple and effective I can't believe I didn't think of this earlier.

Crochet Motifs

Now that I have bored you silly with sand bags here's some crochet motifs I've been learning over the last couple of days.  I found them all on Youtube, here are two of my favourite channels: lots of leaves and flower tutorials , and yarn scrap Fridays, unfortunately I didn't capture where I got all of the motifs from.

And the inspiration for learning how to crochet cute little motifs was this fantastic silk blend yarn in what I'm calling peacock colours. I'm planning on making it into a beanie for myself but decided I would like to make it out of lots of leaves and flowers worked together somehow. I'll let you know how it goes.
