I have had this little goodie in my stockpile ever since I purchased David Coffin's book Shirtmaking. I have tried a few times to figure out how to use it and been totally stymied. You all know I am making that BWOF shirt for the blouse-making class. Well, I decided that flat felled seams would look great on this shirt, so today, after much running around and emotion, I decided to do some seam practice. I tried my felling foot. No luck. I tried a few other methods I had read and they all looked less than perfect. I finally decided to pull Shirtmakingoff the shelf and do a little studying. After reading the section on felled seams a couple of times (I guess I'm a slow student) it finally clicked. I tried it out a few times and was pleased with the result EVERY TIME! I love my felling foot. I will be felling all over the place now! I'm so excited, I even made a little tutorial on how to make a flat-felled seam. I hope it inspires you!
