Meet My Best Friend

I'd like you to meet my best friend... the rolled hem foot! Love this little gadget!!! The only problem is that sometimes getting her started is a little tricky. She likes to fiddle faddle around with the bobbin thread. Some times it takes her a good inch or inch and a half to get her groove on.
The other day I was getting a little mad at her (friends sometimes do that), when I realized that all I had to do was put a piece of paper under the fabric to get her going from the very start. In the above picture I used a piece of a grocery sack, worked more troubles!

We're best friends again.....sigh :)


  1. I need to learn that trick!

    I saw your giveaway at Tatertots and Jello and am now a new follower, your clothes are adorable!

  2. k, my bloglines has not been updating, and i just got caught up on everything! holy cow about studio 5. and you deserve it Bobbi!! oh man! k, can't wait to see you at gmas! love you!

  3. Nice pictures and I also love the little dress your friend has on! Very cute!

  4. I need some sewing lessons from you! I probably have one of those little sewing feet - but have no idea how to use it - lol!


  5. Bobbi--I saw this post and the picture and I thought "I have one of those" so, I went and looked and, sure enough, I do. So, I tried to use it and I am not having luck. We are not friends at all. Do you have any other tips? I can't seem to keep a roll going. I would love suggestions because I can see the value of such a friend. Thanks.

  6. I do sew, but I've never used this attachment & didn't even know about it. Thanks for the great idea!

    Warmly, Michelle
