Festive decoration

A Christmas wall hanging can replace an array of table top or mantle shelf decoration.  Just using some of the great sewing & embroidery functions on our Janome machines, Embroidery software, specialized rulers, decorative accessories and… the most important… creativity… it is possible to produce a unique mini-wall hanging.


The techniques used for this mural are:

  • Meandering with stippling using the unique Janome AcuFil system
  • Artistic embroidery software to convert some Christmas images into embroidery.
  • Putting our favourite ‘The Sewing Revolution’ (round) ruler to good use.
  • Janome  ¼ ” foot  and Binder foot (for bias tape)
  • Janome Buttonhole foot and Button sewing foot 
  • Several decorative buttons
  • Silhouette Cameo for the star on the top of the tree.
  • Thread: solid colour as well as varigated.
  • Janome Red Tip needles
  • Janome F foot – satin stitch foot.



To hang the mural, there are two possibilities:

  1. Sew a quilt sleeve on the back to slide in a flat hanging rod.
  2. Sewing four  loops with buttons and buttonholes


Here is a great opportunity to practice using all the accessories that you purchased during the year or found under the tree today! 


Don’t forget to “sign” your masterpiece on the back – using our Janome embroidery machine is a great way to do this!
