My daughter purchased the KungFuKing Multifunctional Kit 32 for me back in January. I’d planned to write a mini reviews on the feet as I tried them out. By the time I started writing it, several fellow bloggers posted/reviewed on similar kits that they purchased. So, I stalled on posting anything about the one I had.
Today, I decided to go ahead with my first mini review because there are several different sewing machine feet kits out there on the market and not all kits are created equal or are they compatible with every sewing machine.
This particular kit can be used with Singer sewing machines. So let me start by reviewing the description sheet.
The description sheet provides large pictures of each foot and the name is printed below them. The description continues with how each one can help improve the quality of various construction processes. The sheet does not provide details on how to facilitate those processes, which is not a problem for most experienced sewists. But if you are a new sewist, instructions on how to use the blind hem foot might be helpful.
In the past, I’ve noticed that some universal feet are not well made. This kit, although the feet are light weight, they produce very good stitching. There are no rough edges. When attached to the machine, they attach with no problem.
|Rolled Hem Feet|
I was most interested in the knit, ¼ and 1/8 rolled hem feet. Both of them rendered the desired results. Below is my test of the rolled hem feet. The first picture is (left to right) rolled hem with 1/8 foot and my two step process for creating a rolled hem (wider than 1/8). The next picture shows the right side of the fabric of the same illustrations. The third picture is of the 1/4 and 1/8 rolled hem result.
The picture below is my test of the knit foot. I used a sharp needle, size 12, with polyester regular thread. No skipped stitches. NOTE: I was also able to achieve the same effect without the special foot on the same fabric. So, this foot may proof more effective of a knit with more stretch. That test to come later.
So far these are the only feet I’ve tested. The rest will be tested later. I’ll try to remember to review each as they are used in upcoming projects.
Here are a few more of the feet that come in the kit. The first two are the 7 and 5 Holes Cording Feet. These are suppose to make attaching decorative cords and threads easy. The second picture is of the Roller Foot. It helps prevent fabrics like jersey, vinyl, and leather from slipping or puckering. And the third foot shown is the Adjustable Bias Tape Binder Foot. It is use to achieve beautiful edge finishes with bias tape.
