Create Your Own Plaid Tutorial
DIY Patterned Scarf Tutorial
We may be nearing the start of spring, but it's still cold outside! Consider this tutorial from Sam Hunter as your final cozy sewing project of the season. She shows you how to use the decorative stitches included on your Janome sewing machine to create your own plaid fabric. This technique is also useful with St. Patrick's Day coming up very soon to make a Irish themed plaid. The combination of home-made plaid and snuggly flannel works perfectly for the late winter season.
She uses her Horizon Memory Craft 8900 QCP for this technique because of its 9mm stitch width and several decorative stitch options, but you can use any satin or decorative stitches that your machine comes with.

Video: Topstitching With The Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G
Here's an easy technique for making terrific topstitching.
Sure, you can use the Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G to make hidden stitches (see Creating A Blind Hem Stitch). But because of its adjustable guide, this accessory makes it easy to add topstitching along an already finished seam.
Using The Adjustable Blind Hem Foot G To Do Topstitching
- Choose a straight stitch.
- Adjust the flange to give you the desired "bite" (distance from the edge).
- Guiding the edge of your already sewn seam along the flange, sew your stitching.
Now you have a row of topstitching a perfect distance from the seam.
To see this demonstrated watch Adjustable Blind Hem Foot Video: Doing Topstitching.
For help making sure you have the right presser foot, ask your local Janome dealer.
