Earlier this year I was asked about my sewing habits and if I liked to sew with lots of accessory feet. I answered honestly (or so I thought) that I didn't like to sew with a lot of feet, but rather that I preferred to sew with as few accessory feet as possible. Little did I know that I was in denial! Read on to see how I discovered the secret of my foot fetish!
I started sewing with this totally bitchin' vintage ashtray next to my machine to help hold all the "stuff" that I use while I am working on a project. It works fabulously, and makes clean up easier when I finish a project - I just have to put everything in the tray back in it's place!
This weekend I started sewing on that Oliver+S Tea Party Sundress, a simple toddler dress with matching panties. Oh my gosh! Look at how many accessory feet I used for this one simple pattern!
That's FIVE different feet in there! So, I have to admit it to myself, I really do love feet! I didn't NEED to use so many sewing machine feet, and you might be asking why right about now, so here's what I used:
I used the plain jane foot for stitching seams, the Patchwork Foot for 1/4" seams, the Overlock Foot for finishing seams, the Edgestitch Foot for topstitching, and the Buttonhole Foot for, yes, buttonholes. So what about you - do you have a foot fetish like me, or do you sew with just a few staple accessory feet?
And I do have to admit that I have 2 favorite accessory feet; the Ruffler and the Walking foot! Do you also have a favorite?
