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.

A little less of a disaster now.

I forgot to tell you yesterday, the sewing room is now a little less of a disaster.

multiple pencil sharpeners

I should have got rid of the excess pencil sharpeners, but I don't know which one works well on the tailors pencils, which works well on lead pencils and which works best for graphite. So I'll do that next time I need to sharpen those things.

cord thinga-ma-bobs

And no, I didn't donate those black thingy-ma-bobs for cords. I haven't decided yet, but I will probably keep a few and sell the rest or something.

I know, I should have thrown out the blunt seam rippers, but I don't remember which ones are blunt - so I'll do that next time I need to use them. Until then they are in that cute little box with my crane scissors so I know just where to lay my hands on them.

My favourite tools are still within reach and all the rest are put away where they should be. Yes, that is another pencil shapener, why do you ask?
