Create Your Own Plaid Tutorial


DIY Patterned Scarf Tutorial

898-plaidscarfWe 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.
