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.

Don't eat these mushrooms, they're very poisonous despite looking like some you can find at the grocery store.

We've had some really steady rainfall over the last couple of weeks which we desperately needed. One of the best things about the rain is the little surprise fairy homes that pop-up everywhere. More commonly known as mushrooms.

Do fairy's live here?

  2. We had a great time walking around the forest in the autumn spotting all the different types of funghi. M would run around spotting them and shout out "mushroom" at the top of her voice.
    I didn't take out my macro lens though and I kicked myself for it.

    1. These mushrooms will definitely send you to the intensive care unit! We have a book on mushrooms and apparently there are about 4 edible types in all the hundreds that grow around here. And they are really hard to tell apart.

    1. The chances are they would at the very least make you sick. How hungry must we have been to figure out which mushrooms are edible?
