One of the great things about patchwork sewing is that you get to make up the patterns and fabric placement as you go. However, this means that you may not be pinning your fabric beforehand, but rather adding small pieces of fabric under your presser foot as you go. It can become time consuming to have to stop and raise the presser foot each time you want to add a new piece, and can also be dangerous if you are trying to use your finger to push the fabric under the foot without raising it. In this video, Tara Rex shows you a great fabric-feeder stylette tool that can be used to safely speed up any patchwork project. And the best part – it’s customizable!
