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.

I'm keeping it!

I'm keeping it! A clutter story.

About three vehicles ago I made seat covers for our car. Before the covers were put on the seats the car was rear-ended and written off.

The seat covers were put away never to be seen again.

Going through all of my boxes of fabric and half finished projects I found them. My fist impulse was to declutter them. And maybe I should have but something made me pause.

I wondered if they might fit my sewing chair. The chair I am for ever trying to protect from cat fur.

And they do! They aren't a perfect fit but they are better then the towel I was using. I could rework them but I'm not going to. The covers are perfectly functional as they are.

I did my best to get some good photos to show you, but these will have to do.




It's okay to keep them if I'm using them right? Even if they haven't been used for the last decade or so? Right? Oh well at least Ada seems to approve.

  1. Ha, ha! I love how your cat loves your sewing chair. I hope the seat covers work well for you -- and if you're using them, then yes, you should keep them. :)
