What A Team! Janome + Anna Maria Horner

Looking for some great ideas for projects using your Janome machine?  Well Janome has teamed up with the very talented Anna Maria Horner to bring you delightful projects including The Right Turn Bag.
I just love that you can use up strips of fabric and use the great decorative stitches on your Janome machine, and with Anna Maria’s instruction, you’ll have yourself a unique tote bag that will turn heads.

Some of our ladies decided to give it a go and here are the results.

Above is Erina’s front and back of her bag using her purple and orange fabrics. 

Helen and her daughter on the left decided to have a day together making the bag.  Helen is not a fan of straight lines so she did wavy stitching and used lots of embellishments.  Helen’s daughter Gemma made the large version of the bag.  Deb on the right wanted to use up some of her vast stash of spotty fabrics.

Christine used some scraps of Kaffe Fassett fabrics and used some coordinating solids for the stitching detail.

Built In Bunting

 The Janome Memory Craft 500E is full of fantastic built in embroidery designs including bunting.  That’s right… I said bunting.  I decided to have a little play and here’s how I went….

I combined the bunting design with lettering that is also built in to the machine making it a very simply proces.

Here they are.  Ready to be made into bunting for our display.

This was so much fun.  Instructions are included in the manual that comes with the machine to put your embroidered bunting together.
