Sewing Foot Pedal Dollar Store Hack Add Grip Shelf Liner

Prevent slipping by adding grip shelf liner to your sewing machine foot pedal.  Add a piece under your sewing foot pedal to prevent it from moving while you’re sewing.

Now you can put an end to your foot slipping off your sewing machine foot pedal.  I especially love using this because I can put a piece under my foot pedal to prevent my pedal from scooting across the floor every time I sew!

The next time you’re in the dollar store scout the isles for ideas you can use in your sewing room.

How To Organize A Craft Room

Here’s a sneak peak at my post on how to organize your craft room.  Click here to read the full post.


  • The first thing you need to do is take a full inventory of all your supplies.  In order to completely organize your supplies, you need to know exactly what you have.
  • Consider how often you use them and how much storage space you will need.

TIP: If you have a lot of supplies you do not use…get rid of them.  You don’t have to throw them away, you can give them away on Free  Recycled Stuff,  a church, Goodwill, schools, daycares, or a local organization.  The main goal here is to have your craft room stocked with supplies you use.  You don’t want to fill it with supplies you don’t use, this just adds more clutter to your room.

  1. I must say preventing slipping hack was amazing! They’re easy & sounds fun to do. Will definitely try them out! But painters tape idea felt tricky & kinda less useful to me, might work for others. I’m just sharing my opinion. Last but not the least, as myself is a big mess organizing craft room ideas will be a lifesaver!
