Janome Supplies Required

Janome Supplies Require :

  • Any Janome Embroidery Machine - Louisa uses a Horizon Memory Craft 12000
Fabric and Notions Required

Fabrics and Notions Required:

  • 1 ½ yd. terry cloth
  • 1 ½ yd. flannel
  • 2 packages of extra wide bias binding
  • Embroidery thread of your choice
  1. Cut a square of terry cloth by folding the fabric diagonally it will take about 1 ¼ yd. of fabric.
  2. Cut a square of flannel the same way.
  3. Layer them on top of each other wrong sides of fabric touching, pin and machine quilt.

  4. Machine quilt as desired I did a large grid to hold the two layers to each other. After machine quilting is completed cut excess of to make the terry cloth and the flannel same size! The towel is completed let’s start the hood.
  5. Cut an 11 ½” square of fabric from the flannel, the square folded over will create a triangle or the hood.

  6. But before attaching the hood to the towel we need to first embroider the child’s name on one half of the square. Once the embroidery is completed it is optional to add a piece of binding to the fold (or long edge) of the triangle, see photo of finished towels. Then pin the triangle to one of the corners of the completed towel.

  7. You are now ready to add the double fold binding to the towels add this on the terry cloth side and miter the corners as you go.

  8. Finish the binding by turning it to the flannel side use a nice embroidery stitch.

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.
