So Leslie was wonderful enough to get back to me about a free motion couching foot for my Janome. It seems her Janome using friend has a "Miracle Stitcher" which is out of production but can be found on Ebay sometimes.
So, being an impatient person (God's working on me), I went ahead and hacked my foot! Not to be confused with breaking my foot, which my husband did at my request when all I had was a generic closed toe foot. (OK, I admit it, it's fun to say it like it's an injury!) Check out Leah Day's blog for instructions to break your own foot.
Ooh, look! There's yarn on my machine and it made that feather shape too! It worked! The first try, the hole was too small, but version 2 is pretty snazzy. There are a few misses, but are easily fixed and I think the motion of whipping out a feather is a pretty hard test. I have raided the old yarn stash and, uh oh, have been thinking of other yarns I'd like to try this with!
I have the new free motion quilting set from Janome, which contains 3 different toes for FMQ. A open toe, closed toe, and an echo foot (looks like a bullseye). See my first free motion couching post. The open toe is my good friend and we work together so well. The echo bullseye foot I never use, so I hacked it.
A piece of clear plastic from a Pringles can lid, a yarn needle, and some super glue and you can hack your foot too! I glopped up the glue so it's not as clear as it should be, but you can see through it. I'll do a tutorial tomorrow.
Leslie also gave me some info on some good regular couching feet that will fit my machine.
Now the question is: Why can I be fearless and confident enough to hack my foot, but have a total lack of confidence in most areas of my life, including quilting?
