Just Preparing

In and around my sewing, I seem to spend a good bit of happy time just preparing. Today is one of those peaceful, puttering days.

A pair of husband's torn jeans pulled from the trash provide some gorgeous resist patterns. I'm not sure how I'll use these pieces yet, but they are so pretty, I think.

The pocket areas are my favorite but the back yoke and waistband also provide interesting possibilities.

I also like to have a few dye pots around the house. Husband is so very patient with these sometimes stinky endeavors. Here is one that carries on continuously - a small copper pot for my discarded tea bags. It contains some squares of cotton sateen.

Happy making!


  1. Fun! Can't wait to see what comes of all this!

  2. I also love jeans that have been pulled apart. You do better with your dyeing than me, but I am hoping to do some this week.
