sewing machine feet -- I'm thinking magnetic board, write the name of each foot, stick the foot onto the magnetic board next to it's name...especially since you'll only be using 1 foot on the machine at a time...

The Importance of Feet

todaywemade.co.uk

To prevent pant hems from looking “high water” and to give a custom touch, make them ¼” longer in the back than the front. This is called a “tip” because you are tipping the hem downward in the back. Formerly done as a matter of course in both women’s and men’s pants, tipping is rarely seen in ready-to-wear garments, but we as sewers can apply these custom touches to our garments and look a cut above everyone who does not sew.

Ever wonder about all those feet that came with your sewing machine? This site has fun tutorials for everything and tips for the experienced and beginner alike.
