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.

It's been a busy day acquainting myself with the KNK, better known as a Klick-n-Kut.


I had some problems finding the right writing implement and settled on an Artline pen but it wouldn't fit into the pen holder. I was able to use it without the holder but that meant it was off centre for using in conjunction with the cutting blade.

When hubby came home I shared my woes and he suggested we just go buy a pen that fits. We ended up choosing some gel pens in black and blue as well as a pack with gold and silver.

Although the photos are blurry because it's super late and our night time lighting is rather lacking you can still see the different colours the different inks make.  The gel pen comes out lighter then the Artline but the silver looks smashing if I do say so myself.

    1. I'm a bit worried I haven't left myself enough time to prepare.

    1. Thanks :o) It's certainly better then nothing at all and I think I rather like the minimalist approach of just my website on them.
