Swimming Jim in Neoprene07:00
When I was in the process of designing the Swim & Gym bag pattern for the Bag of the Month Club (August '16 season), I thought it might be a great idea to work with Neoprene! As most genius ideas go, it wasn't happening, it was too thick for my flimsy machine and it sat half done in the naughty corner.
Well just recently I got the Janome 6600P MC and to my amazement, it could not only handle the thickness, it made a really good job of sewing it! So here it is, all finished and ready for a day on the beach.
Bag of the Month Club (July - December '16) season, and won't be available as a standalone pattern until February '17. If you want to get your hands on this pattern, then I'd recommend the club subscription, the bags released so far are fab, and there's another one on the way!
