Erika’s Top 3 Presser Feet
If I could only choose 3 accessory feet to work with, you know, if I was stuck on a desert island with my sewing machine and only a handful of accessories to go with it, these are the 3 that I just couldn’t live without!
1. The Ruffler Attachment #86, my absolute favorite Bernina foot! The perfect stitch quality of the BERNINA sewing machine means that all the ruffles made with this attachment will be perfect, too! I use this foot for adding ribbons and trims to garments and crafts – from heavy grosgrain ribbon to delicate strips of tulle.
Not only did I attach the tulle trim to the edge of this apron with the Ruffler Attachment, I also used it to gather the body of the apron to the band.
2. The Edgestitching Foot #10/10C is a lifesaver for finishing garments with edge stitching – even when stitching next to a seam. The metal guide helps to keep my fabric feeding through the machine nice and straight, and even guides me when stitching in the ditch.
I used the #10 Edgestitching presser foot to stitch on the edge of this bow trim – nice and straight!
3. The BERNINA Stitch Regulator foot. I’ve onlyl just begun to play with the BSR, as I am quilting my very first quilt ever. I don’t know what I’d do without it, the BSR keeps all my stitches even as I move the fabric around, which is really helpful for a beginner. And it’s not just for quilting, look here to see other project ideas for your BSR!
