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.

All That Glitters...

All that glitters... probably clutter.

This was a pretty blue hair tie, that I don't think I ever used even once.  But I kept it, "just in case"!

Lets look  a little closer.

It's so dusty you'd call it dirty, and yes, that is a spider web. I tossed it.

Have you kept something unused for so long you've ended up having to toss it out? No? Just me then.

    1. hahah - thank you! It's always good to know you're not alone.

  2. With five children, I have adopted regular purges to try to keep clutter to a minimum. These purges have deleted pet rocks, school projects, and "whatever that is" from our household. I try to keep the purges quiet because if the kids don't know to miss something, then they don't know to be upset. And most of these "must keep" items haven't be played with for months. Thanks for this humorous, yet honest post. :)

    1. I have no idea how you manage to keep on top of it all with 5 children! You must find some real doozies!
