Travel Set - Document Purse

Created By: Amy Meek
Skill Level: Beginner

While travelling, you can sometimes misplace or lose your purse or breifcase. It's important to keep your documents on you at all times so that they cannot get lost. You can use this easy over the shoulder bag to keep your documents in so that you can leave it on for your trip.

Janome Supplies Required
  • Walking Foot / AcuFeed Foot / Narrow AccuFeed Flex Foot
Fabric and Notions Required

Fabrics and Notions Required:

  • Rotary cutter, ruler and mat
  • Thread
  • Scissors
  • 1/3 yard neoprene
  • 1/8 yard clear vinyl
  • 3 yards double fold bias tape (you can make your own)
     

 

Instructions

Instructions:

  1. Cut one piece of neoprene 7 inches by 12 inches and two pockets 7 inches by 4 ½ inches.
  2. Cut one pocket out of clear vinyl 7 inches by 8 inches
  3. On one side 7 inch side of each pocket piece using the bias tape enclose the raw edge. This is easier using your walking foot.
  4. Place the clear pocket and a small pocket with the tape toward the top of the large neoprene rectangle matching the 7 inch raw edges. Place the other pocket on the side of the large neoprene and baste the pockets in place.
  5. Cut a piece of bias tape 36 inches long and top stitch long edge closed for handle. Baste handle in place on bag and tuck length in pocket. (this keeps it out of the way)
  6. Encase all raw edges with remaining bias tape and top stitch it in place.
  7. To make a closure make a fabric loop on the bottom of the bag and use a ribbon, cord or top stitched bias tape length on top flap.

Around the Table Dresden Placemats
Saturday, December 17, 2016

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.

Great Machine
Wednesday, August 30, 2017

I've had this machine for only a week now. I bought it used from a lady who makes her own clothes, but she no longer needed the machine. During the purchase, she noted that she is almost sad that it's better to give it away because of how well the machine performed. (I also bought it along side a computerized machine of another brand.} She demoed the machine for us, showing it worked and gave us everything (including the box it came in!) She took amazing care of this machine. I have used it a few times now, and the directions for threading were easy to follow (albeit my hands are quite large so the lower looper was a pain, but that is no fault to the machine or brand.) And I recommend this machine to anyone who wants to learn to serge and wants a machine that can grow with them. I will happily use this machine time and time again.

S9 Review
Sunday, February 25, 2018

I love, love, love my S9! It's sews and embroiders beautifully and it's simplicity of use amazes me. I would recommend this machine for both a beginner and an experienced seamstress. If I would ask anything of Janome it would be to upgrade the programming to run a larger hoop size. I understand that it can't get much wider but there is most definitely room for it to go longer. That is the only limitation of this machine.

I purchased a Memorycraft 15000 a few years ago and it was the best purchase I ever made! This machine can do just about anything you would would ever want! I love the capability of using the Acuedit app to set up my embroidery pattern on my Ipad and then download it to the machine! I love how my embroidery looks upon completion and I love all the good lighting it has to light up your workspace. That way you don’t need to worry about where to set up your machine. It also has plenty of room to do machine embroidery on any size quilts! There are many decorative stitches from which to choose that are outstanding! It’s hard to choose which one to use! There are so many great features it is hard to decide what I love the most. If you want to buy only one machine to last a lifetime, I would recommend this one!
