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.

Procrastination - the great motivator

Today is a momentous day.

Decluttering boots....finally!


I decluttered my first pair of boots.

It's possible they're vintage, I've had them for about 15 years and they were quite old when they came into my possession. It matters not. I won't wear them again. My feet won't let me.

It's time for someone else to have them.

Oh, but hang on they're broken.

I'd forgot the zip had died. I recall being quite annoyed about that at the time it happened as I'd just paid to have the heels repaired...again. Perhaps it's time they just went in the bin.

What inspired this sudden desire to say goodbye to boots when I haven't been able to bring myself to do it earlier?

Procrastination.

Yes, procrastination turns out to be a great motivator for doing something other then what I should be doing. What I should be doing is figuring out the sewing room.

But I consider letting go of a pair of boots to be a fine start! I mean they are boots after all. Boots I tell you. BOOTS!!! Not just shoes, boooots!

  4. I remember always getting the sudden urge to clean my room when I had a paper to write in school..procrastination is indeed a great motivator! And good for you! Getting rid of boots is really hard to do. I recently tried but I didn't get that garbage bag out of the house quick enough! Maybe next time :P
