Spin Around!

I really hope that you will all get a chance to try the new HUSQVARNA VIKING® Ribbon Feet Set [1]. I have used it and it is very easy to spin around and create decorative ribbon embellishments. The Ribbon Feet Set, comes in three different sizes. When you use it you should choose the size that accommodates your ribbon in the best way, meaning that it should feed the ribbon in a good way. In order to get the best result you should use an iron-on stabilizer or a tear-away stabilizer underneath. Depending on the fabric, more or less stabilizer is needed. My recommendation is to always test on a scrap piece of the fabric, before you sew on your real project.

In the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Ribbon Feet Set kit you will find a user’s instruction plus an instruction movie and an inspirational slideshow, so you won’t be stuck without any help! There are so many possibilities with the Ribbon Feet Set. You can use it to decorate your garments, pillows, tote bags or where ever you like to add a little special ribbon decoration.

Below you can see some pictures I have taken on some really nice things that have been sewn by one of my friends, Barbara. Barbara is working at our development team here in Huskvarna and she is creating many of the beautiful sewing machine stitches, which is added for new presser feet for example. Here you can see her skirt (my favourite), a top, a quilt block and a tote bag. They are so nice!

Ribbons that fits the HUSQVARNA VIKING® Ribbon Feet Set is sizes between ¼”- ½” (6mm- 13.5mm), preferable flat ribbons. The Inspira® Ribbon Kit in neutral or bright colours are perfect to use because these ribbons have a very good size for the Ribbon Feet. The ribbons are available in both amazing vibrant colour shades as well as in different textures. I thought it would be easiest to use the Ribbon Feet Set in free motion sewing mode, but found out that it is just as easy to sew with the regular straight stitch. Note: If you are going to create a swirl or a spiral, start in the center and work your way out.

Happy spin around sewing!

Best wishes
