Making Merry With Janome

Christmas is the best time of year for sewing those special items for those special people!

Today I have the pleasure of not only showing you what I have been making, but being a part of

I do all my creating on my Janome! 
I love my machine. This was the first machine I have ever bought new!  I thought it only fitting that I dress it up for Christmas.

I had this fun fabric from Riley Blake Fabrics that was hexagons in red and green. I knew I wanted to use it in a way that still kept the pattern of the fabric.  And I love stockings!   Oh and ric rac and pompoms too=) By combining all three, I would have pure Christmas magic!

I decided to make two at the same time, one green and one red. Wait until you see what I put in for lining!

See the yellow elephants?  That is Amanda Herring's fabric from Riley Blake!  Can they be any more fun to see when you reach your hand in to get a surprise?

Giant white pompoms adorn this stocking!

Mini red pom poms went on the other stocking!   
Wait!  It didn't end there, a friend fell in love with them and she wanted a set for her family!

On the blue one I added some jumbo ric rac.  The red stocking has no trim as that is for a guy and I thought he would appreciate that!

Thanks Janome for such a fun time showing my Christmas project!
