Embroidered Shoes and 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. 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 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 of a simple pair of white sneakers could become something so much more." - Janome Maker Trish McLaughlin
