Pink Lap Quilt

Published 08/29/2011 by Donna Kennedy

A while back, my mother made the mistake of telling my sister that we’re not “frilly, lacy people”, so I decided to make her this cheerful, frilly, lacy quilt, complete with lace trim around the center square.

Jeans Shorts Alteration

Published 08/16/2011 by Donna Kennedy

Today we altered a pair of jeans shorts for Roxanne. Although the thickness of the denim was a challenge for her machine, the pants eventually went from “bubble butt” to perfect fit in an afternoon!

Jeans Project Before

Before - The belt is really making a bunch!

Jeans Project Pinning

Pinning it Down - You can see the chalk line where we were taking it in to.

Jeans Project, Comparing Old and New

Comparison - She had another pair just like them, so you can see the size difference.
