A different twist

The other day I was hemming a few pairs of Blue Jeans and in order to have the right weight and a blended color I tryed using two different shades of gold and threaded them through at the same time and through just one needle.......

I was very happy with the results and how it behaved in the machine as well.

I am sure I will try this again in other sewing where I would like the thread to be a little heavier.... post cards and quilt details are just a couple that I can think of right now.

I have almost finished quilting the second of my McCall's QDS quilts labels and hanging sleeves to follow as well. I just missed a opportunity to have them hanging in Saskatoon .... maybe another time.

I am about half done a grad gown that I have been working on over the last while.... with any luck I should have it done by the week's end.

Have a great day out there and try out using double thread ...... you just may like the look and have a few  uses for it as well.

  1. Perfect idea for the jeans , two threads would work well and give a professional finish . Must remember that for the next hemming job ;-) See you have your machine back , lets hope it is all fixed .
