Foot of the Month Project - Yarn Couch Pouch

Posted by Letitia Moore
Make this quick and easy pouch. Learn to work with the different decorative stitches on your machine. The Fancy Trim Foot is simply perfect for 6mm ribbons holding them firmly in place while you stitch over the ribbon with your favourite decorative stitch.

Dig out wool, braids, cords etc. from your stash and use either the braiding foot or the 3 Hole Yarn foot to see what a difference they can make to enhance the stitches on your machine.

Learn the Flip & Stitch technique, sewing directly onto heavy weight stabiliser, then add the lining fabric and quilt it all together. This is a quick and easy process giving you instant gratification.

Put in a zip quickly using the wonderful ability on your Husqvarna VIking machine to move your needle position either to the left or the right to obtain that perfect snug stitching line.

Make your own bias binding. You won't believe how easy it is to do if you have the right tools for the job.

Don't just do a standard straight stitch to hold the binding in place, again use a decorative stitch in conjunctikon with the Edge Joining foot which will keep you sewing straight down the folded edge of the binding.

These are the optional accesspry feet used in this project:
  • Three Hole Yarn Foot - H4131870-45 This foot will easily quide the yarn through the holes in the front of the foot and back through the groove under the foot to create stunning braids.
  • Fancy Trim Foot - H4128238-45 Perfectly aligns 6mm ribbon to the needle and then stitch over the ribbon giving you a beautiful background to the stop stitching.
  • Edge joining foot - H4127968-45 The guide in the middle of the foot is a little shorter than the Stitch in the Ditch foot, so getting right into the mitred corners of your quilt is a lot easier.
