While visiting one of our Janome stores recently (Snip and Stitch in Nanaimo, BC) , I saw a simply wonderful idea for storing & toting around all the hoops -FOUR in total – for the Janome MC12000. Thank you so much to Stephanie from Nanoose Bay on BC’s beautiful Vancouver Island for sharing this great project idea with us.
Stephanie explained to us that she measured the big flat box that the hoops come in and cut her fabric accordingly. There is a little strip all the way around the box edge to accommodate the depth of the box and the zipper was inserted into this strip around almost 3 sides of the box. She added strong webbing tape as the carry handles. I think, if I remember correctly, she used pre-quilted fabric but you could quilt your own “sandwich” or embellish in any way you wish. Stephanie also top stitched all the way around the edges to give a great professional finish.
Well done, Stephanie!!!
