    Made with a Cactus Lou Box Top Hack

    "Since I've gotten the honor of keeping the Janome Skyline S9 machine for the year, I've done a little more experimenting with the capabilities of this machine. I've been loving the built-in embroidery designs, but was ready to test out the USB feature and open myself up to the world of online embroidery designs. When I was thinking about a spring project, I was trying to think of what my wardrobe needed and how I could use the Skyline S9 to elevate my closet addition. 

    When the seasons start changing, the first thing I realize I'm missing is a proper pair of shoes to transition to warmer weather. I go from a closet full of boots and heavy socks, right into sandals. I usually need a pair of footwear that will cover my toes, but are fun and light to walk around in. Footwear is not something I can make. As much as I wish I could, shoes are not yet in my handmade wheelhouse. That is when I thought a simple pair of white sneakers could become something so much more." - Janome Maker Trish McLaughlin of Trish Stitched

    “I love combining thrift stores for men’s dress shirts in fine fabrics. This week, I found this fabulous Lacoste shirt that was begging to be remade into an Easter basket liner and outfit for my grandbaby. If you’ve never used a steam-activated shrinking interfacing, like Pellon Fabric Magic, this project is for you. Steam activated fabric (available under several different brand names) gave my bunny applique just the right texture!” Janome Maker Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews 

    Milind made both projects with the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000Click here for the free bunny applique download and instructions for creating texturized fabric. Make this project for this upcoming Easter!
