Check out my latest Foot Note videos! Foot Notes are quick little videos, usually 1 minute or less. They show fun and useful techniques using a wide variety of specialty presser feet. Take a look and subscribe to my channel so you’ll be the first to know when new ones go up! If you want to see a particular presser foot video, let me know in the comment section below and I’ll put them on my list. I have four new Foot Notes:
Couching on Paper with Braiding Foot #21
Couching is a fun embellishment technique that adds color and texture to the surface of fabric or paper. To see my previous post with complete instructions for making this paper quilt, CLICK HERE.
Double needle pintucks are another way of add texture to your fabric. Stitching them in a grid adds pattern as well as texture to a plain or printed fabric.
Stitching Binding with Lap Seam Foot #71
Using Foot #71 is an easy way to secure the edge of your binding, for a clean, precise finish on all types of projects, such as quilts, purses, placemats, aprons, etc.
Piping with Foot #12
A simple, tailored trim to accent seams and edges, piping is easy to stitch using Bulky Overlock Foot #12/12C.
More to Learn
If you want to learn more about BERNINA presser feet, take a look at my Feet-ology course. BERNINA offers about 100 feet and attachments choices and this course is an introduction to all of them. I created this course because many students in my face-to-face classes are confused about what the feet do, why to use them, and how to use them. To be fair, most of the feet have a similar, silver look and it may be hard to distinguish one from another when you don’t know what to look for. Feet-ology covers all of the feet in 11 video lessons plus a bonus class on the BERNINA attachments. The final lesson has instructions to make a technique sampler using some of the presser feet and attachments covered in the lessons.
