Create Your Own Plaid Tutorial

PrintE-mail

DIY Patterned Scarf Tutorial

898-plaidscarfWe may be nearing the start of spring, but it's still cold outside! Consider this tutorial from Sam Hunter as your final cozy sewing project of the season. She shows you how to use the decorative stitches included on your Janome sewing machine to create your own plaid fabric. This technique is also useful with St. Patrick's Day coming up very soon to make a Irish themed plaid. The combination of home-made plaid and snuggly flannel works perfectly for the late winter season.

She uses her Horizon Memory Craft 8900 QCP for this technique because of its 9mm stitch width and several decorative stitch options, but you can use any satin or decorative stitches that your machine comes with.

Have an Aspiring Athlete in your Life? Keep the American Drive for the Gold Going with a great new project.

We ended the last of the big games over the weekend. Did your favorite athlete take home the gold?

Remembering to go for the gold is important all the time! Inspire yourself and the important people in your life with that little reminder in your home. This pillow project, by Erin Schlosser, will show you how to use your sequin foot and a strand of sequins to write out a message. After you've made this project, you'll have the fun skill of writing with strands of sequins that you can use in many projects to come. For example,  creating custom pieces, supporting teams or causes, and so much more!

America went for the gold all month, give yourself a message to do the same all year long!
