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.

My sewing room is a disaster

The clutter in my sewing room is so great at the moment I don't know where to start.

No I'm not going to show you a photo of the whole room but I can bring myself to show you a small section of my sewing table.

sewing table clutter

There is stuff that should be there and stuff that has just been dumped there because there wasn't another surface to put it on.

Those 3 pencil sharpeners got dumped there from another decluttering project and should get put in the spot for pencils and things.

The band aids should go in the drawer under the table and are for when I've pricked a finger with a pin and need to make sure I don't get blood on my project.

That bag of black things is LOTS of those spring cord fastener doovalacky-whats-its. I can't remember where I got them. I don't use them. But surely I'll need them for something right? Do you want them?

I think there are some bead thingys in the round cheese box. Yeah, that's what's in there.

That presser foot has a home.

Half of those seam rippers are blunt. So why do I still have them?

Threads that should be put away - they have a home too.

A fabric off-cut that should be in the bin.....So I think you get the idea. Just imagine the whole room like that. You were expecting an after picture? Sorry, I don't have one of those.

What's your sewing/crafting area like?
