"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

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.
