I was really excited to tackle this project for you all! Our family loves the tradition of opening a Christmas Cracker before our big holiday dinner. We even wear our crowns for the meal! With these Reusable Christmas Crackers I now get the joy of stuffing each one with personalized custom gifts! I’ll probably sneak some chocolate in there too!
This project couldn’t be easier. Janome machines come with so many decorative stitches and this project lets you use a bunch of these stitches. PLUS, if you have the Janome Continental M7 with the PC application pack, I show you how to create your very own stitches using the Stitch Composer. Look at those adorable trees and reindeer!
(there are number of Janome machines which include Stitch Composer)
Materials (for each cracker):
- Fabric 18cm x 33cm (7″x13″)
- toilet paper or paper towels cardboard tube
- Ribbon 66cm (26″)
- Madiera Stabilizer
- Madiera Thread
- D1 (6mm) Rolled Hem Foot
- Ribbon Sewing Guide
- Border Guide Foot
