As a Martha Pullen licensed sewing teacher I love to learn new sewing techniques and I equally enjoy teaching sewing techniques to others. You can also find me teaching Bernina Customer Courses at my local Bernina dealer. In addition, I demonstrate Stampin' Up products. I am a servant of the Lord of Lords and King of Kings, wife of one, mom of two, and grandma of five. Welcome to my sewing and crafting studio!

I also have all my denim pattern pieces cut and ready to sew. Here's a picture of the embroidery that I added to the back pockets:
I used my embroidery machine to embellish them with a simple design. I backed the denim with No Show Mesh Fusible interfacing so as to make my stretch denim non-stretch denim so the design would not end up distorted. I also backed it with a light weight tear away stabilizer. I ended up embroidering the design twice, with the second stitch-out exactly on top of the first stitch-out for more impact since the embroidery thread was a bit wimpy looking against the beefy denim fabric. I tried to use gold topstitching thread to embroider the design, but my machine didn't play well with that combination.
I will post more progress updates as they occur. Have a great middle of the week.
