Janome Embroidery

Ok I have got over my fear of my new embroidery machine now Ive read the manual several times, watched the DVD several times and I am starting to feel more comfortable with it.

I have this pillow cushion on the end of my bath its made from towelling and has embroidered words on it, so this morning I thought I wonder if I can do something similar on my machine.

So here is the bath pillow

And here is what I came up with

I was going to make the word “relax” vertical but my cushion is square so it looked better doing it this way. I added a design that is on my machine just to break it up a bit.

I didnt have embroidery thread in the browns, creams and taupe so I have just used ordinary Coates sewing threads which do have a slight shine. I used calico and a tear away stabiliser and I think it turned out nice.

The chair is an old one I blogged about a while ago and I only got around to painting it yesterday with Annie Sloan chalk paint and clear wax.
