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.

The Works

Heritage 'Interpretation' Works?

If this building were built today it would be a concrete pull-up

    1. This is the old rail-way workshops and there is a row of massive building after massive building that have been sitting there for ever doing nothing. Now they are being restored for all sorts of uses.

  2. Certainly looks like a building worth preserving. Will you be taking hots throughout the restoration? #MySundayPhoto

    1. A lot of restoration has been undertaken already to some of the buildings, and you can barely tell, others have a brand new and very modern facade so you can't even tell that it was once a historical building. I will go down and get more shots though.
