Saturday Sewing Projects from our friends at Sew4Home!

Our friends at Sew4Home have done it again! They’ve selected 3 classic S4H projects which will be perfect to try on a variety of entry level, mid-range, and top-of-the-line Janome machines. Of course, you’re welcome to use your favorite model, but it’s also fun to explore how certain techniques, accents, and embellishments become easier as you take advantage of advanced machine features.

Store make-up, sewing or craft supplies – anything you wish! This fun little project is sew versatile!

See Through, Box Bottom Zip Pouch + Janome 1522PG
This cute pouch combines pretty cotton at the top with a handy see-through bottom. You’ll create boxed corners, learn to add end tabs to a zipper, and get tips for sewing with vinyl. We recommend the Janome 1522PG Anniversary Edition as a perfect beginner-friendly model for the project. Celebrating Janome’s centennial year, this pink and white beauty has style and function. Use the convenient dial to adjust foot pressure for sewing across the thicker vinyl. It also has a more generous sewing bed than what you’d traditionally expect.

Nautical Ahoy! Appliqué Pillow + Janome 3160PG
Word Pillows are always popular at high-end home stores. Put your appliqué skills to work to make your own for a fraction of the cost. A free template for the “Ahoy!” design is included – or pick your own saying. The key is a sharp cut to the letters and precise stitching. We suggest the Janome 3160PG Anniversary Edition for the power and precision to get the job done. With its Superior Feed System and large extension table, you can stitch with ease and confidence. We also love the one-hand needle threader that makes changing thread, fast and easy.

Patchwork Bed Runner + Continental M7 Professional.
A bed runner is a decorative throw for the foot of the bed. This one features basic nine-patch blocks with each inner block made up of four pieced triangles. A clever mixing of colors creates a 3D effect within each of the inner blocks as well as in the finished nine-patch itself. Using the Janome Continental M7 makes the construction a dream. It has the largest sewing area in the industry, an intelligent feed system, and the smooth needle penetration to go through piecing as well as free-motion quilting like a knife through butter.
