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.

Black Swan Cygnet

These black swan cygnet shots were taken at the end of August and it's almost Christmas! This year seems to have just evaporated. It's hard to imagine these white fluff balls will grow up to be black.

  1. aren't they gorgeous? and hasn't this year flown by? scary stuff! only 3 weeks exactly till Xmas. eek.

  2. They look so soft and fluffy

    Thank you for linking up

  3. Aw cute little babies, we are waiting on a suspected pregnant goat to give birth which will be tricky to manage in December, thankfully it is warming up this week. Your signets are delightful.

  4. I'm not sure that I have ever seen black swan cygnets before, beautiful

  5. You know, people always say signets are a bit ugly but they're so beautiful aren't they?

  6. Aren't they gorgeous? We have mute swans on the canal near us, and it's been fab watching the cygnets grow up

  7. They are so cute! Never understood why they are called ugly ducklings!

  8. Aw - They are sooooo cute! I think it's neat how their eyes aren't red yet, either. There was a pair of black swans at an animal refuge I used to do work for, and they used to scare the daylights out of me. They would sneak up on people and challenge them with their wings spread... It always scared me to turn around and see that huge bird with it's mean-looking red eyes! But I've never seen their adorable little babies. Thanks for sharing them!
