Are you tired of your foot pedal sliding around while you sew? Do you find yourself constantly adjusting it, disrupting your flow and ruining your concentration? Fear not, my fellow sewist, for I have the solution to this pesky problem.
First things first, let’s talk about why this happens. Most foot pedals are made with a smooth plastic bottom, which can cause them to slide around on certain surfaces. Additionally, as you sew, the repeated motion of pressing down on the pedal can cause it to move.
But don’t fret, there are a few simple solutions to this problem.
One option is to use a non-slip mat under your sewing machine and foot pedal. These mats are made with a textured surface that grips to the table, preventing any sliding. They also come in various sizes, so you can find one that fits your workspace.
Another solution is to use a piece of rubber shelf liner. Simply cut it to size and place it under your foot pedal. The rubber material will create friction between the pedal and the surface, keeping it in place.
If you’re feeling crafty, you can also create a custom foot pedal pad. All you need is some non-slip fabric, such as gripper fabric or silicone-backed fabric, and a sewing machine. Cut the fabric to the size of your foot pedal, sew around the edges, and voila! You now have a non-slip pad that will keep your foot pedal in place.
So there you have it, a great solution to stopping your foot pedal from sliding around while sewing. Say goodbye to pesky interruptions and hello to uninterrupted stitching!
