Today we did a speed dating session with sewing machines, there were 12 machines with different feet to go around in the day. We had 20 minutes to have a go on each machine.
Here are some of my samples from my favourite feet of the day!
Pintuck foot – creates 3d raised surface, great for creating textures and a 3d effect in my work.
Fringe foot – creates loops of thread which can be left or cut to create fringing. Lovely for texture on a piece of work.
Piping foot – enables easy and neat piped edges on fabrics, great to add a bit of contrast with fabrics.
3 way and single cording foot – creates lovely decorative stitching with lines of cord underneath, good technique to combine colours with.
Ruffler foot – creates ruffled ribbon really quickly and easy, you can choose for it to ruffle every 1, 6 or 12 stitches.
Decorative stitching foot – creates really neat decorative stitches, there are so many to choose from!
This was a great day as I have learnt loads of new techniques that I can use on the machines!
