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.

Micro Crochet Squares

When you finish a bobbin lace project the chances are high that you will have a lot of bobbins that still have yarn left on them.

Not enough to actually use for another bobbin lace project but it felt wasteful to just throw the leftovers out. So I saved them for some crafty thing.

yarn scraps and mini crochet squares

I decided to try teeny little crochet squares with the scraps.

It's a fun little project because you can get one square done in no time at all. Just the perfect endless project for in-between big projects or when you don't really have time to be crafting but your soul needs a little bit to get you through the week.

Why is there a cuff link in the first picture? It's just there for scale.

I don't know what I'll do with them yet. The possibilities are endless.

Perhaps little bobby pin decorations, earrings or a Christmas garland...tell me, what would you do with them?


  1. neato! not sure how you crochet that tiny without going blind! A mini garland would be cool! If you get it done in time and add some red, it could be for Valentines! or matching earrings/necklace/bracelet? Worlds tiniest granny square afghan? :) Imagination is the limit!!

    1. The first time I tried was a total failure. I'm sure i make mistakes that I can't see, but then again no one else can either. I haven't done any more squares for a while, I like the idea of a tiny granny square afghan - a 10 year project maybe?
