Celebrate Festival Season with JUKI!

With the summer sun finally here, it’s time to start celebrating! This year’s festival season is kicking back up, and we wanted to share fashion ideas for your looks. With festival trends coming and going, here are some great options for you to recreate.

Face masks

While festival season comes back with a bang amidst Covid, it’s always fun to be fashionably safe! If you’re planning to wear a face mask, we recommend looking into nylon and spandex fabric. These materials are waterproof and come in a variety of exciting colors, perfect for hot outdoor days. Cotton is also a great choice and allows you more creativity in the designs. On top of a protective mask, you can wear an additional mask to accent any outfit. The additional mask can be made with beautiful fabrics featuring intricate designs like lace or flashy designs with sequins or beads! Adding accessories to your mask is easy when you use our beading presser footer. Personalize your mask to represent you!

Upcycled Looks

With quarantine bringing new life into the sewing world, expect to see people with new pieces they’ve handcrafted! It’s a great experience when you find something old and upcycle it into a new fashion statement. Grab old pieces you enjoy and a sewing machine like the HZL-80HP-A that helps you create fashion that goes together beautifully. We recommend ideas like patchwork, upcycling dresses into a two-piece set, or turning plain t-shirts into funky outfits!

Small Mini Bags and Fanny Packs

Attend your next one with a comfortable mini purse or fanny pack that holds your essentials. Create them using intricate fabrics, faux fabrics, or add on embellishments to really wow! Creating beautiful bags is easy using a heavy-duty machine like our TL-2010Q. This sewing machine comes with accessories like our zipper attaching foot. We recommend fanny packs, tactical pouches, or cross-over slings when deciding to make a bag!

Bucket Hat

Bucket hats have made a comeback! Perfect for keeping shade while making a cute fashion statement, look into accessorizing with a bucket hat. Personalize by adding fun designs and embroidery using our Tajima Sai! Look into canvas or denim fabrics for the pieces on the inside for a sturdier feeling and clean look. A fun idea is to get your friends together and make matching ones!

Whether you’re going into festival season with the most outlandish outfits or a more toned back look, choose creativity and show up with your very own unique look!

Growing in Sewing

After some much-needed playtime on your new JUKI sewing machine, you want to start getting creative! This is where accessories come in. Below are a few recommendations for presser feet and accessories that will get your project done right.

COMPUTERIZED & SEMI-INDUSTRIAL ACCESSORIES

Our first recommendation is JUKI’s walking foot or even feed foot. These feet are great for feeding thick fabric and other multi-layered projects. For example, when creating straight lines on quilts or sewing handbag straps, the walking foot is incredibly helpful in preventing the bottom and top fabric from bunching because it is feeding the material evenly.

Another recommendation is getting a zipper foot! JUKI has a variety of zipper feet available in different styles that allow you to sew close to the edge of the zipper teeth, piping, and other bulky edges. Zipper feet make it oh-so-simple to embellish fashion pieces, secure handbags, and more!

Our final recommendation in this series is the smooth foot. If you are looking to sew leather, vinyl, cork, and/or other hard-to-feed materials, this is the foot for you! Wanting a smoother go while you work on a project will help you achieve a clean, professional finish!

QUILTING ACCESSORIES

Wow your friends and family with a one-of-kind quilt! Add ribbons, applique, and other embellishments with the glide foot! This bowl-shaped foot is an expert at going over three-dimensional embellishment when free motion quilting. Create beautiful designs with no stress!

Our Grip and Stitch makes free motion quilting easy and fun! Each pack comes with two different-sized disks that provide outstanding support. With the larger disk in your left hand and the smaller disk in your right hand, place the disks on top of your quilt and begin quilting. This gives you the ability to design funky spirals, beautiful feathers, and more!

Want to take your quilting to the next level? JUKI has the tool just for you! We have a wide variety of rulers at your disposal available. Created to help you get the design you want, our rulers can assist in straight stitching to clamshell designs.

OVERLOCK AND COVERSTITCH

Looking to create straight hemlines on pants and shirt sleeves? Our coverstitch hem guide is the perfect tool for you! When it’s difficult to see the backside of your fabric, this guide can set the folded width of the fabric and align the edge of the fabric from the backside easily, minimizing the work for hemming.

Another recommendation is JUKI’s waste collector. This accessory is perfect for keeping your area tidy allowing you to throw out scraps as you sew. Also, it can be great storage for accessories to keep at an arm’s length.

When it comes to making sure you have the basic tools for your project, we highly recommend looking into the MO Kits. Available in set-piece sizes of 3, 6, and 8, these kits provide you with presser feet that can help you complete your project! Containing different feet in each set, we create these for practical sewing or decorative stitching on clothing.

Pocket Frame

EMBROIDERY

Getting the right tools can make embroidery set up so much faster! One recommendation we have is our magnetic frames. These accessories are offered in three different sizes and can help you embroider beautiful designs with clean stitching and faster speed on garments such as t-shirts, jackets, bags, and more!

We love embroidering designs onto our clothing and that’s why we created the pocket frame! This accessory is great for sleeves, pockets, cap side of parts, and much more; there are no limitations to your creations! Customizing garments for clients or your own just becomes more fun when you have the right tools to get it done how you imagined it.

Last but definitely not least, the most important part of sewing is needles! Our embroidery sewing needle pack is specially designed with a larger eye size to keep your threads from breakage. Our embroidery sewing titanium coating needle pack was created to last using Perfect Durability (PD), our needles are finished with titanium-nitride ceramic that gives you longer needle life when embroidering through tough materials. Cost-effective and durable is what these needles are all about!

JUKI knows that an accessory can make projects more enjoyable and easier for you! What accessory do you use on your projects?
