Anyone who has ever sewn on a vintage singer machine has probably cursed and futzed with that singular one toe button that makes the machine GO.
it has often left me wondering about the women of that era.
Were there feet really that narrow?
What was the point of having TWO buttons, one stationary and one that depresses to bring current to the machine to make it go?
It’s actually a pretty great design if you know to put your foot on the SOLID button first, and then ROCK your foot so the side of the foot presses down on the button.
But we’ve gone one step furhter here!
This foot adapterwas brought to the Bunkhouse in Quitman Texas and I thought it was ingenious!
Especially if you can put some non-skid stuff on the bottom to keep your foot from sliding all over the place!
We all got out our cameras and took photos from every angle.
Instant gas pedal!
Holes are routed out to fit the foot feet!
Posing this on the mat for size!
Hinging the bottom piece to the top piece!
measuring the whole she-bang!
There is no pattern given for this gizmo. I merely am posting it for the ideas it provides. Hopefully the sizes you can see on the cutting mats will give you an idea!
I typed this post while waiting for my flight in Greensboro, wasn’t finished by the time it was time to board. Thought I’d get to finish it in Atlanta, but when I got from one gate to the next, my flight was alreday boarding!
I’m now sitting on the plane hoping to get it finished and will set it to post a bit later as I was able to get this morning’s quote of the day up by my phonen already.
In case you missed it:
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
You just go right on loving yourself for who you are! Don’t listen to others’ opinions – it isn’t their life that you are leading!
Have a great Monday, everyone!
