Designer jeans first try-- Dec 2013

Very nice! I made a pair unfortunately the fabric is so thick that I can not sew the belt loops--any ideas??? I have already pounded them with a hammer!

a bigger size needle? or an industrial machine. my sewing machine does not like denim that's a little too thick. have something that will even out the presser foot when it's on the thick part, maybe hand wheel it even. good luck!

Thanks, I have tried everything on my regular machine and since it is an embroidery machine also, I really don't want to push it anymore, i will check out an old singer or an industrial machine to do these heavier things, I am also enrolled in making leather bags and I know my machine will probably not like that either. Hey by the way, your jeans look very good, keep it up!!

Amy, loved meeting you at the Bernina Extravanza this week. You should post the jeans you showed us there. Great work! Gerry Lynch

Thanks Gerry! It was so great meeting you too! I've made so many pairs of jeans. I'll post more. Stay in touch! I'd love to see all the things you're making!
