Well, it's because I was having problems keeping a straight 1/4" seam while sewing the strips together on some of my Strippity-do-dah quilts. Sometimes the fabric or my hand was too slick to hold the fabric in place as I zipped through the strips.
A few days ago I was rummaging though some drawers and I had a
go off in my head when I saw the lone gardening glove with little rubber knobs on the fingers!!
I immediately put the glove on my left hand, sat down at my machine and starting sewing - fast and accuately because the glove gripped the fabric and my slippery problem was gone!! Whoo! Hoo!!
Now, if you don't have a lone gardening glove with little knobs on the fingers sitting around your house, you could use commerical gloves used to free motion quilt ~
like these commercial ones or you can make your own fun ones like these ~
