  4. Pic 53 – Pull the hood straps through and make sure they are the same length at the bottom. The top part doesn’t really matter since it won’t show in the end.

  1. What type of presser foot is that? It looks like it would make tiny hems SO much easier than the clunky “general purpose” foot I have!

    • I think it’s the B foot. I have Husqvarna/Viking sewing machines, and a bunch of feet came with one of the machines. I switch feet a lot and my machine recommends a foot to use. I think I use the B foot more than anything and when I feel like it, I totally ignore what the computer says to do. Yeah, the feet do make it a lot easier to sew well.
