A Quick Project That Will Save Your Back!
Does your machine’s foot pedal tend to creep across the floor while you’re sewing? This easy-to-make non-slip pad will keep it from sliding out of place.
The pad will save you from having to stop and pull the pedal back into place. It will also save your back from stretching to follow the pedal across the floor. You’ll find it much easier to maintain comfortable posture while you’re sewing.
Gripping spongy shelf liner is the secret ingredient to these mats. A bit of batting and a pretty fat quarter will finish it off.
To begin, measure your pedal and cut the materials to fit. Add a padded bumper to keep the pedal in place on top of the pad.
The tutorial from So Sew Easy will walk you through all the steps. It also gives pointers for measuring and deciding on a size for your pad.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
