Hi there, and Happy National Sewing Month! My name is Jess Abbott the Sewing Rabbit, owner of the Me Sew Crazy Blog and SewSet.com. I was thrilled when Heather asked me to be here today, as I find a good sewing tip can absolutely change your sewing life. This Series is a fantastic way to help others not only sew easier, but sew better! There have been many occasions when I have personally had that light-bulb moment, from helping me not have wavy seams when sewing with knits, to easier handmade bias tape tips. And every single time I come across a good sewing tip, I have one recurring thought…
Why didn’t I think of this sooner?!!
Today, I am introducing you to a fun little sewing foot I stumbled across while shopping in the Los Angeles Fabric District. It has become my new best friend when sewing with leather, vinyls, and other ‘sticky’ fabrics. The Roller Foot.
This nifty little foot is one of the cheapest attachments you can purchase, typically ranging anywhere from $5 – $10, and snaps right onto the shank of most sewing machines. You can find it on Amazon.com. What does it do? Snap it onto your machine, and it literally helps your sticky fabric roll right on through. You no longer have to worry about your fabric getting stuck to the bottom of your regular presser foot, and it works even better than the scotch tape trick! One of the things I love to make with leather scraps are little leather bows.
So simple and sweet Jess! We have a new little girl coming into our extended family later this year and I think these will make the perfect gift!
Stay tuned, Nancy Zieman joins the National Sewing Month series and is sharing one of her favorite tools in the studio.
