My Creative Space

I got a new toy in the post on Tuesday.  Well, really I can call it a tool rather than a toy.  It's a walking foot for my sewing machine.  I was reading this blog post the other day and was (easily) convinced to get myself one.  So after a quick search on Trade Me I found one that would suit my machine  and bought it!

I've been in the process of making nappies for my SILs and trying to sew the PUL and microfleece layers together has always been the most frustrating part to do as the microfleec always stretches.  So my new walking foot came at the perfect time.  It was sooooo much nicer to use!  I can see it being almost permanently fixed to the machine now...

Here's an action shot:

  2. I've just got one too - aren't they amazing?!!! Mine was primarily to quilt but then I realise it does any kind of sweing really - great for very long curtains which always ended up with the top fabric stretching waaaay over the bottom. Like you mine's nearly always on now. x

  4. Oh hooray for new tools that make things easier. I've been advised that unless I plan to hurl my Janome out the window (which was the recommendation) I simply must have one of these.
