Piping Foot – accessory of the month November 2017

 

The Janome Piping Foot has 2 grooves which allows for 5mm cord to be fed through with ease whilst sewing.  What exactly is Piping?  Piping (or cording) are the outlines of home decor. They provide a coordinating or contrasting edge along the seams of slip covers, cushions, pillows and more. You simply sew the piping (or cording) into your seam and it gives a professionally finished look. There are many ways you can use cord in your projects – just take a look at the ‘Piping Cord Embellished Table Runner’ project available when you click on the link on the Accessory of the Month…

Janome Embroidery Bauble Decoration

Whip up a little handmade Christmas magic with our Embroidery Bauble Decoration! Check out this fun little diy sewing project:

Requirements
• 2 x embroidery threads
• 2 x empty bobbins
• Organza fabric (will vary depending on how many you make)
• Wash away stabiliser (will vary depending on how many you make)
• Small scissors
• Ribbon to tie decorations once complete
• USB with downloaded designs – you may wish to combine multiple designs into one hooping.

 

Construction
1. Hoop wash away stabiliser with organza on top.
2. Wind a bobbin of each of the two threads.
3. Place the thread that you wish to use for the centre of the design in the machine. Also put matching bobbin in machine.
4. Attach the hoop.
5. Embroider the motif area of the circle.
6. Change the thread to the 2nd colour in the bobbin and on the machine. This will stitch the satin stitch around the bauble.

 

7. The embroidery bauble should now be completed. Remove from the hoop.
8. Cut around the organza and stabiliser using small sharp scissors. Be careful not to cut the stitching.
9. Rinse the bauble in water so it becomes sheer with only thread and fabric.

10. Dry and press.
11. Attach ribbon through the top of the bauble and start decorating your tree!
