Baby Tag Blanket

Created By:

Milinda Stephenson of Milinda Sews

Skill Level: Beginner

"I love watching Brooks touch and explore the uniquely different colors and textiles. One tag is created from his great-grandmother's childhood blouse. Another is a crocheted piece. All of the tags are created using bits and pieces from my sewing drawer which is stuffed with sentimental items that I can't bear to throw away. What fun to use them on something the baby loves so much!" - Janome Artisan Milinda Stephenson

The unique features on the Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15000 made embroidering this a breeze. Milinda was able to raise the presser foot during embroidery to fit over the thick crocheted tag and then lower it again immediately. Milinda also loved using the magnetized SQ22 Hoop. It made embroidering the slick nylon fabric a breeze.
