    A Wet Bag Tutorial

    Janome Artisan Caroline Hulse of Sew Caroline made an adorable Wet Bag for her daughter using the Skyline S7 sewing machine. Caroline used gague vinyl so that it can easily store a wet bathing suit or towel without it getting damp on the outside.

    This adorable project is great for those who enjoy lovely summer days at the beach, lake or pool.

    "I love opening my great grandmother's cedar-lined hope chest and examining the delicately embroidered baby clothes. Because I love the embroidery and I have neither the time nor the patience to recreate it by hand, I like digitizing similar designs using my MBX software.

    I wanted to recreate what the September 1916 Needlecraft magazine calls a "boudoir pillow". It looks very much like the pram pillow embroidered by my grandmother in 1916 for my uncle. 

    My version is a bit sturdier and is embroidered on a heavier weight cotton. By using a wing needle in the machine embroidery process, I was able to emulate my grandmother's hemstitching. 

    My pillow was embroidered on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 using the grand hoop." - Janome Artisan Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews

    Sew4Home worked with Janome Educator Nancy Fiedler's Original Circular Zippered Pouch tutorial and turned it into a convenient Full Circle Zippered Sewing Case. The free downloadable pattern that Sew4Home included marks to transfer for hand-stitched ribbon ties.

    The Sew4Home team used the Skyline S7 to make this great project. The case they made finishes at 7" in diameter with a depth of about 3/8 - 1/2".
