I recently had craft day with granddaughters. They wanted to make Pocket Purses using my embroidery machine. I took my Janome 11000 to their house and they each made a Pocket Purse using Anita Goodesign's Projects Pocket Purse designs. They had fun making these purses. The design is a in-the-hoop design. Even the zipper is added in the embroidery hoop.
Here GD#1 shows her Pocket Purse while GD#2 used the embroidery machine. She uses her purse to hold her IPOD. We had a great time using the embroidery machine. The project was so simple that they were able to complete the purse with little supervision. They are so familiar with computers that a computerized machine doesn't intimidate them. Fun time!
