Denim Dilemma and Pretty Butterfly

Yesterday was a rollercoaster of a weather day with bright sunshine one minute to pouring rain with hail the next. Good day to stay inside and quilt. Unfortunately, my sewing machine and I were not getting along so I needed to find something else to do. Up from the basement came the two boxes of jeans that I have been saving the past few years and I spent hours cutting them up. 

Now I just need to figure out what I am going to do with them.

My son is going to a birthday party on Sunday for one of the girls in his preschool. I had her handprints from a quilt I made using the handprints from all the kids in the class for a silent auction benefiting the school. I used her handprints to make this butterfly, quilted it and stapled it around a canvas frame for easy hanging. She likes butterflies and pink. My son picked some Polly Pocket cars as his gift to her.


  1. The butterfly turned out great! Good luck with the jeans.I don't save mine on purpose:)

  2. What a pretty, unique birthday gift!
