Saturday Sewing Projects from Sew4Home!

With winter still knocking on our doors across Canada, our friends from Sew4Home have created another series of fun projects to keep us warm and safe sewing up a storm INSIDE! These are great projects to use up scraps and the fabric stash.


Janome 311PG Anniversary Edition – Hurry to snap-up any of the special commemorative Anniversary machine. Once these models are gone, they’re GONE!

Necessities On The Go Mini Wallets + Janome 311PG

This pouch is just right to hold the essentials when you’re out and about. Tuck it in your pocket or toss into a larger bag. A great gift idea, especially with a card or cash tucked inside. It’s a beginner-friendly project, and the Janome 311PG Anniversary Edition is an ideal beginner-friendly model. This pink and white cutie certainly looks great, but also has the functionality to back up the beauty. There are 15 built-in stitches including a four-step buttonhole. You also get a special bonus bag with bobbins, scissors, pincushion, and fabric tape.

Featured Accessories:  Quarter Inch Foot for Edge-stitching.

Janome 5300QDC

Ironing Board Thread Catcher & Tool Caddy + Janome 5300QDC

Your ironing board is an important surface throughout any project. Doesn’t it deserve its very own organizer? Keep tools handy and the area neat and tidy with this catcher/caddy combo. We recommend the Janome 5300QDC as a great option for this project’s tight corners and variety of substrates. Thanks to the machine’s Superior Plus Feed System, it powered through each step with ease. The Automatic Buttonhole Foot was perfect for adding the buttonhole that secures the caddy’s pincushion. From décor to quilting to garments, this mid-range model is a real top performer.

You can really add pizzazz to your sewing/ pressing area by using some fun colours and prints for your Ironing Board Thread Catcher & Tool Caddy. It’s such a fun project!

Sweet, Soft, Stuffable Bunnies + Janome Memory Craft 6650

Bunny pals Lolly, Chester & Flora are all extra huggable! Use the free pattern to create your unique pal, adapting the style of fleece, cotton, and accessories to bring out each bunny’s personality. The 10″ all-metal seamless flatbed on the Janome MC6650 provided a perfect work space for putting together a project with a number of smaller pieces, which also makes it excellent for quilting. We loved using the automatic thread cutter and the Start/Stop button. It’s a model that allows you to focus on creating, confident the machine will do its job with flawless precision.
