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. Is the top one of the bird pooping? If so, I hope you weren't stood underneath it! The second shot is amazing. I love the positioning and how much sky you have left. #MySundayPhoto.

    1. Hahaha - yes, naughty bird! But a rare enough shot I had to share. Sorry if you were eating lunch or something. 0_o Glad you like the second shot. I think the term for that composition is rule of thirds.

    1. I nearly didn't! Hubby assured me it was quite acceptable for photography circles.

    1. I was a bit worried for a second. It wouldn't have done the camera any good. Lucky for me his aim was off.

    1. We get a few different types of egrets here so we had to look pretty closely to figure out which type it was. The cattle egrets have some pretty colours going on. What a treat!

  15. I don't know much about photography, but this picture had to be a difficult shot. I love it! What kind of shutter speed would you use for this?

    Replies
    1. Hi R.C. The shutter speed is the number on the right under the photos. 1/2000 or two thousandths of a second.

  16. Whatever she'd been eating certainly had a purgative effect!

    1. Too much poo if you ask me! (2 dogs, 2 cats, 3 birds and a fish will leave you feeling like a professional poo manager)

  18. I laughed hard when I realized what was going on on the first picture (and the comments are so funny too ;0). At first, I thought the bird what caught in some sort of wire.
