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.

Old Fashioned Goodness

For those with a lactose intolerance there was rejoicing when lactose free milk became available in Australian supermarkets, even if it was only available in UHT.

Shopping is difficult enough without having to get multiple milk types so when one family member has an intolerance it's easier to buy only lactose free milk.

I remember real milk from my childhood where milk had cream on top.

Do you remember that indulgent bit of cream at the top of the milk bottle?

Do you remember that indulgent bit of cream at the top of the milk bottle?

It was a little treat for whoever got to open the milk bottle first. A nearly forgotten little embellishment to daily life that seemed to have fallen by the way-side with so many other things in this modern world.

There's been a resurgence of old fashioned food products hitting the shelves and milk that hasn't been homogenised is one of them. But it's not something we've had here in our lactose free milk house.

So you can imagine the excitement at finding this in the fridge, old fashioned milk. LACTOSE FREE old fashioned, cream on the top non-homogenised goodness. Or maybe you can't imagine being excited over milk, but we were.

Do you remember that indulgent bit of cream at the top of the milk bottle?

Some Grumpy Farmer also wanted lactose free glorious real milk it seems. So I just want to take this opportunity to say; 'Thank you Grumpy Farmer for purfylling my everyday in this nearly forgotten little way.'

What sort of milk do you have in your house?

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post, the only compensation for writing this post was the pleasure of drinking a glass of this goodness while I wrote it. Okay, it was a cup. A cup of yummy full cream milk. I don't even know if the Grumpy Farmer will read this when I try to tag him on Facebook.
