Enter....the rolled hem foot:
This scnazzy foot has saved me countless hours of ironing, folding, re-ironing etc.
What it does is roll two teensy tiny folds in your fabric, giving it a finished hem. A finished hem that looks SO MUCH BETTER than anything I could do by hand. I'm able to feed ruffles through at break neck speeds!
I'm not going to lie: There is a learning curve to this foot. You have to figure out just the right way to hold the fabric, but once you figure it out, you will use this foot:
all. the. time.
Since I discovered this inexpensive tool, even home dec tasks like these don't seem nearly as daunting.

Next post, I will be showing you a tutorial for a somewhat simple table runner I made using this nifty tool....
