In case you missed them, here are a couple of new tutorials that I wrote as a guest blogger at Michele Ma

Thank you for inviting me to join in on your denim fun, Michele! When Michele approached me about creating a recycled denim tutorial, I couldn’t say no to the challenge but fear was right there too. I get nervous stitching through all those layers of denim! As I was sewing my project, I found myself leaning back and squinting, expecting a needle to break at any moment. I considered safety glasses. Twice my thread broke and twice my machine displayed a message “Stop for safety sake.” But all in all, it was lots of fun creating this free pattern for you!

I’d like to introduce my Upcycled Denim Pillow Play!

The theme here is the Three Little Bears but the options are endless. Papa bear can be hidden in the Papa sized fly; and Mama in the Mama sized fly. Baby fits in the Baby sized pocket. Goldilocks has a roomy back pocket all of her own but we know that won’t satisfy her right? She will want to try them all out! The pillow is backed in an adorable print, just perfect for this project, called Appleville Houses in Bright from Suzy Ultman. I could picture the Three Little Bears living in any one of those houses.

If you’d like to make a little pillow front theater, just collect some jeans, download this pdf and you are on your way!
