    Im sorting through things and I have a small bag that has tools, etc for my sewing machine and I found this in it. I dont have the book that came with my machine anymore and I cant figure out what it is used for. The blue part is rubber with grippy things on the bottom. My machine has storage for all the feet but there isnt a slot for this one. Is it some sort of walking foot? I know one of you experts will know what it is! And ill probably go..well, duh..of course thats what it is!!

    it's a button foot. it holds the button in place while you sew it on using a zigzag stitch.

    I did a lot of internet searching for feet for my new machine, seen a wide variety of them, but not one that looks like yours....I am curious too as to what it is used for :wink:

    Isn't it wonderful that someone ALWAYS knows the answerwhen you ask a question on this forum! Thank you Patrice, I had no idea what it could be because of the little lip on the bottom. After you gave its use, it makes sense! :lol:

    What a cool idea. I never realized that they had a foot for that.
