Seriously, have I been under a rock??
Yesterday, my husband picked up a Gathering Foot (#16) for me at a Bernina Shop nearby. It is the best thing ever!! I can't believe all the time it will save me.
So for those of you wondering about a Gathering Foot, here is what is can do:
1. Gather or Shirr a single layer of fabric
2. If you want to sew a gathered layer to a non-gathered layer (think tiered skirt) you can do this in one step as well! Just place the fabric, right sides together. Place the non-gather fabric in the little metal slot and the gathering fabric on top. It will gather the top and keep the other one straight!
Oh, the time I will save in the future!!
This would have been perfect for my Ruffled Bag...
Ruffled Baby Quilt...
I admit it, I'm on one today. So I'm finishing this post now.
But if any of you have been wondering, it does work! And it's easy!
