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.

Favourite Blooms

Black and yellow pea flower

My 55mm - 250mm lens rarely gives me such smooth pretty bokeh as it has in this pea-flower shot. Most of the plant was in shadows and I had to carefully position everything to get the little sunbeam that was poking through. A moment later and the sunbeam was gone. 

Grevillia flower

This pink flower is fairly scrappy looking grevillea specimen but the birds just love it.

Grevillia flower and seed pods

Cream coloured grevillea's are much rarer then the reds and pinks. The seed pods are equally as decorative as the flowers themselves if you ask me.

hibiscus flower

Hibiscus flowers seem out of context amongst these other blooms and this isn't even a particularly good shot but the play of light appeals to me.

pomegranate flowers

The promise of pomegranates to come.

Purple pea flowers

I think the purple peas are looking at me. They have to be my second favourite flower after the black pea. Which flower is your favourite?
