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.

Pumpkin Top UFO


This pumpkin coloured top is made of cheesecloth. I have one finished and one half finished. I can't even remember why I made it. Maybe it was to test a pattern block.

In any case, this is one UFO that I am quite happy to simply remove from the pile of unfinished projects, right along with the finished version and my entire cheesecloth stash.

Update on Crochet Lace Tape Top

Was there progress?

I've taken the current work off the dress form and found all of the extra yarn. I've put it in my current work pile. Does that count as progress?

I have a confession to make, I am working on a new crochet project which I am hoping to finish as a Christmas gift so it is getting priority at the moment.

Did I enjoy working on it?

It felt great to finally have my dress form free of this project.

Will I continue to work on it?

YES, I hope to even finish it one day.



That concludes another week of #FinishItFriday

I'm really pleased to have another UFO out of the sewing room. What was the last UFO you decided you couldn't be bothered with?

Happy Finishing!
