Draw a picture of something you like, or copy a coloring book picture, or use one of your children's drawings. I drew an Owl, be sure it is big enough to cover the hole!
Remove paper, (it just peals off), and place pieces properly on jean leg, covering hole. Then simply iron again. Use DMC, or embroidery floss to stitch the blanket stitch around each piece of the applique. Sew on buttons for eyes, embroider feet and beak, or any other embellishments you can think of, unless of course you are doing an airplane, or rocket ship, or skull and cross bones....then feet and beak would feel a bit out of place I fear.
Voila!!! favorite jeans have reached, "i will never take them off" status.

I have decided this year to write myself a letter about our Christmas 2008. I want to record for myself, those things about this season that we loved, those things that we didn't, those things that I wish I had planned for, those things I want to be sure and remember next year. The season always sneaks up on me, and when it is over I feel like we missed out on some traditions that I would love to experience. This way, around November of 2009, I can read the letter, and be reminded of what I might otherwise forget. This is all part of my quest to live more intentionally.
