Pig’s Toes!!!

What are Pig’s Toes?  Here at Create!® Sewing Studio, we have renamed a part of the sewing machine. “Pig’s Toes” is the name we use for the Presser Foot.

The reason for this is simple. We do it for safety reasons!

The first time I told a student to put her Presser Foot down and she “pressed her foot down” I knew we had a problem! Then when I found a source that called the Presser Foot “Pig’s Toes”, I hoped that this would solve our problem.

Find me a girl who refers to her feet as pig’s toes!

After over 5 years of teaching kids, teens and adults how to sew…I think we made the right choice! What do you think?
