Sew Under the Sun with JUKI!

The summer is finally approaching us, and we hope you’re getting excited, JUKI Lovers! We wanted to make sure you were ready with some fun summer sewing projects with children coming home for the holidays and family getting together.

Get ready for the summer with your own Beach Bag!

When it’s time to go to the beach, we can’t think of anything better than packing up a bag you made all on your own.

Create at home!

We recommend using fabrics like canvas and duck cloth for that sturdy feeling that can hold its weight when it comes to this project. There are so many different designs that can go into creating this look. From creating contrasts with fabrics to embroidering bright colors and designs, each piece can be personalized to your aesthetic.

Using our JUKI TL-18QVP or J-150QVP, creating a beach bag is a breeze! Add in our Tajima Sai and Ricoh Ri 100 into the mix, and you’ll be able to create personalized embroidered or printed designs that make your bag stand out!

Take a dip in the water! 

Whether you’re creating a look from scratch or redesigning, personalization has no restriction!

Create at home!

There are two fabrics we recommend for your swimsuits; Nylon blends and Polyester blends. Not only is this material soft and comfortable, but it allows for a good stretch and will hug your body well. Perfect for the beach, we recommend nylon for those going more for the sand than the water. Polyester blends are a great second choice if you’re looking for something that will be diving into the water! It’s a soft material like nylon but very strong in addition to being chlorine and UV resistant. 

JUKI has plenty of machines up for this project! We recommend looking into one of the following if you’re interested in creating your summer looks. The MO-2000QVP and MCS-1700QVP are all-powerful machines that can handle stretchy material very well. Add cute beach theme embroidered phrases or designs with our Tajima Sai to personalize each suit at any time!

Sit under the sun!

When you’re lying out in the sun, you want to do it in comfort! What better way to enjoy the summer days than on your very own beach blanket that you’ve created?

Create at home!

When you think of the beach, the combination of sand and wind often comes to mind. Creating a blanket that can handle the weather may be tricky, but not impossible! A top recommendation is picking a suitable fabric that will be on the sand itself. We recommend sticking with fabric like duct cloth for the bottom! This material is a great way to keep sand from seeping through repelling water well and adds a bit of lightweight to keep the wind from blowing it away. For the top of the blanket, we recommend looking into sheet fabric. You can look into repurposing old bedsheets or obtain new ones with fun patterns found in cotton. Don’t forget your canvas tape for that clean look we know you and your family will love!

Looking for a suitable machine to complete this project? We recommend looking into the TL-18QVP, J-150QVP, or DX-4000QVP! Superb for quilting and holding a large workspace, these can help you achieve the look you’re going for with little hassle. Don’t forget to personalize your creation and check out the Ricoh Ri 100 and Tajima Sai! It’s easy to personalize your creations with beautiful embroidery or fun images in an instant using these two!

Pride with JUKI!

Happy Pride Month JUKI Lovers! This month we’re so excited to share a couple of projects for pride that we hope you enjoy creating as much as we loved planning. Below we’re sharing two projects completed by our team to help you celebrate pride this month.

Our first project is the Rainbow Flag! Created for the LBGTQIA community, this flag consists of six colored tubes with a white strip holding them all together at the top ends. The tubes will be overlapped and top stitched for the length of the embroidery. They will remain unattached below the stitching to fly freely. Your finished size will end at 54” x 24”!

Our Second project is an LGBTQIA Mask! Created using our 8 needle Tajima SAI embroidery machine, it is sewn in two halves, with 3 symbols on each side. This pattern was digitized in the Tajima Writer Plus software, which is included with the machine. Experience a fun way to wear your mask outside your home with this fun piece in your bag!
