Default non skid foot pedal

Got this stuff from my daughter but it came from Walmart. I assume it is for lining shelves. Set my foot pedal on it and it has not moved since. My foot pedal is quite large but this works like a dream. Trying to attach a picture but not seeming to work.

That is good stuff, I use it for a lot of things. You can even get it at the dollar store.

I have a carpet on the floor where I sew and that didn't work. I'm really glad it works for you!

I also have carpet so maybe just lucky but sure was a blessing for me. So tired of my pedal sliding.

That stuff can be cut into small pieces that can go under a ruler to hold it firm while cutting. One of the quilt magazines showed it in red cut into hearts for this purpose last winter.

My sewing rm floor is laminate---does not work for me. But I found a clear shower mat at Wallyworld that has big bubbles (helps it grip the tub) for $1. Under my sewing desk & it works for my pedal.

It is also very good under the sewing machine if not in a hole or using it at class. Hand size pieces fit on hands great for freemotion control. Under foot pedal need a flat surface some carpets too fluffy

It can also be found in the car area as it is very good on the dashboard of a car to stop items rolling off.
