Great idea! I don't like the quarter inch foot. I will get some for my feather weight

I think I've got some command strips around here somewhere. I'll have to try this. Thanks!

I use the blue painters tape. It leaves no residue and it easy to see no matter the color of the fabric

I have removed mine four times so far and they stick right back. No residue at all. The whole strip doesn't have to be pressed down just the top end, it isn't going anywhere.

Here is what I used: http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/3m-...653634-product

I will give this a try. I use painter's tape to mark the lines on my rulers so I can cut all my strips the same size.
