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.

Wrong lens? Who cares!

praying mantis
It's such a gorgeous spring day today I couldn't settle into writing at the computer so I grabbed the camera and enjoyed a sunbeam. Sunday I'll share some shots that are real treasures.
This cute little praying mantis put on a real show for me. Of course I had the wrong lens on the camera and so most of the shots just didn't work out, but I rather like this one.

crow
Crows are usually quite vocal about their presence, but this one was strangely quite.

hoverfly
This little hoverfly was doing his best bee impersonation. I'm happy to have him pollinating my vege-patch.

turtle dove

It's getting close to breading season, I wonder if this little dove was looking for a good nesting spot? She was certainly taking a good look at us and the backyard. Isn't she just the prettiest colours?  Soft pinks and bronzes and grey-blue.

All these shots were taken using my 55mm-250mm lens.
