  • Safety pin
  • Screwdriver
  • Elastic
  • Rubber elastic
  • Yarn
  • Needle and thread
  • Scissors


Tip #1

Insert the safety pin around the presser foot vertically, then secure it in place by pressing it in between the screw, and then insert the yarn through the hole of the safety pin. Pull the yarn underneath and in between the prongs of the presser foot, then start stitching and embroider the fabric of your choice however you want, and make sure to add a thread to the needle to stitch it more securely as shown in the video.

Tip #2

Using the same technique as demonstrated above, instead of loading it with yarn, insert an elastic, and stitch it on the fabric to make ruffles, or to add elastic to the fabric more easily.

Tip #3

Another method you can try is wrapping the bottom part of the safety pin with a rubber elastic, then place it right above the presser foot horizontally, and use it as a seam allowance guide. This will make the spaces on your stitches or quilts more even.
