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.

  1. At first I thought this was a real person on a diving board and then I noticed it isn't. What is this...some kind of advertisement for a company or sign at a swimming club? Really cool capture, though. Thanks for sharing and linking on #WW!

    1. She's a sign I suppose for a public swimming pool. She's been there for years - well, sort of - she gets stolen every year (or parts of her do) so at the start of swimming season she is back up as good as new with a new swimming outfit and everything. She's still in one piece so far this year :O)

    2. Ahah, are you serious? She gets stolen?

    3. Sometimes just parts of her - poor thing. We've conjectured about whether there is someone out there with all her missing limbs. She seems to get more cables to hold her on each year.

  2. I love her! There's something very surreal and very cool about these pictures.
