Update: The pattern is complete!
You can purchase a copy at my Etsy Shop:
So...in order to stay focused on getting this pattern done, I've been getting up early before work to practice.
I'm trying to get this down to a science. It's not easy to translate what I know how to do in my head into written, easy-to-understand directions! :)
Continuing from the other day...I've figured out how to maximize the number of circles I can get from a pant leg. In this case, I was able to get 16 circles from one pair of jeans- NOT BAD!
It's taken me a while (and a LOT of practice) to get my measurements down to a science. Since I'm making this up as I go, I've had to play with the exact measurements for sewing between circles. I needed a size that would fit a charm square and still show off the fabric in the middle.
I've made and remade these circles SO many times in order to finally get all of the measurements just right! I am very pleased with how it's worked out!
Sewing the denim circles end to end is actually quite easy now that I have a method for measuring consistently. I never thought about it before but it's not easy to know how to measure from the end of a rounded edge!! ;)
I was honestly able to whip these out pretty quick! It was fun and when I was done I was able to better envision what it would look like when finished!!
Although the pattern is for a quilt, I am making a table runner right now in order to practice the steps more than once.
More pics to come with the charm squares inside!
See ya and thanks for sharing the process with me!!
