I want to make a small bag with a braid type handle for my 7 year old granddaughter. You know the sort… big enough to hold sunglasses and an iPod and not much else. I don’t have a pattern but I have picked out the fabrics. I showed them to her and she loves them. Here they are:

Aren’t they cute? You can’t see from the photo but the one with little cupcakes has gold on it and sparkles. So, wish me luck as I try to work out how to make it. I’ll try to remember to take photos of the process and then if there is any interest I’ll post a tutorial.

The Janome comes home today

Today I’m off to pick up my Janome 3160 QDC from the Janome Office. You may recall it had a mishap while I was learning free-motion quilting. Well I took it back to the dealer and their technician fixed the bobbin case by putting in a new one but that was going to cost me $35. Not a lot of money I agree, but I felt it should be covered by warranty as I hadn’t done anything and this is supposed to be a quilter’s edition machine. So I rang Janome and they agreed to look at it. The dealer kindly delivered it to Janome and their technician had a look and said the “widget” that was supposed to hold the bobbin case in hadn’t been adjusted properly at the factory. So he re-adjusted it, filed the little needle holes out and it isn’t going to cost me anything! Yay for Janome!

Oh,and I’ll be aiming to pick up some more white thread!
