Yesterday I was working on a project (trying to make and use piping for the first time!) As I was trying to make the it using various tutorials around the web, I realized what I have always thought was my zipper foot is actually NOT a zipper foot. I don't know what it is.
Could someone identify what type of foot is in the left hand picture? Thanks.
But my sewing machine (which is 20 years old) came with other feet...so I sorted through them and decided the one in the right hand picture is a zipper foot. It worked way better. I don't think the piping will work where I want to use it...but at least I've enlightened myself about my sewing machine.
I'll have less trouble the next time I want to insert a zipper. Maybe I'll use them more often!
