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.

This super stylish original 1950's fur felt hat is from my personal collection. I'm giving you a sneak peak before she goes on sale at the Guildford Heritage Festival.

And why not some hat pins too?

For the last week I've been struggling with back pain and things are falling by the way side left, right and centre. Email is piling up, all things blogging are being put on hold as much as possible and I still have a fair stall to prepare.

Despite all of that I am still determined to make headway on getting my costume ready to wear to the fair, however it does mean I won't be posting as much over the next two weeks but then everything should go back to normal.

    1. My back is still being rude, but the hat didn't sell. I guess I asked too much for it.
