    Default My first ruler work

    I got all enthusiastic after watching ruler work classes on the Craftsy free weekend and decided to give it a try. Amy Johnson said if you were careful you didn't have to have a ruler foot, as long as your ruler couldn't slip underneath your hopping foot. I figured there was no way this architecture triangle shaped ruler could slip underneath the foot. I put some no slip tape from my shower on the bottom of the ruler and went to town.

    Look how straight those lines are

    Another DIY solution some people have used if they want to use a shape such as a curve or circle/half circle is to carefully trace the shape onto foam core board and cut it out. Some people have cut 2 and glued one on top of the other to get a safe height. I've been told it works fine, so if you want to try continuous curves or some clamshells, etc, you might give that a try. Rulers are so expensive, I am budgeting to add to mine eventually. I don't know what type of machine you have, but I have a Westalee ruler foot for a high shank special machine (Juki TL2010) and I no longer use it. I got the Juki foot and I like it much better. I'd rather have someone else using it than have it sit in my presser foot box totally unused. I'm the last of my friends around here to get into using rulers, so no one locally wants it. Let me know.
