Butterfly Bum

I've been a blog slacker for the past couple of weeks. I've got four new pieces to post and I will soon.

But I wanted to first show off my jean pockets for the Jalie jeans I am making. I've always had a thing for butterflies! I don't have an embroidery machine. So what I did was trace a quilting design onto tracing paper. I then placed the design on top of the pocket and pinned in place. I used tear away stabilizer underneath. I used a triple stitch with regular thread and a small stitch length. I went very, very slow so that I could maneuver around the curves (if you have needle-down and a knee lift feature- use it!). I think they came out pretty dang cute!
