I used Denim and boy was it hard....while trying to sew near the "D" ring I broke a needle....so please be careful.



Thanks for looking.

I've seen that tutorial before.  Denim is kinda hard on needles with that many layers.  Good job on your key chains.

Those are cute!

Have you used special needles for denim? I use a sewing foot for thick material as well - it often saves my sanity.

Very cute!
Re: the broken needle problem...I sew through heavy layers all the time (worked on something today... Cheesy) and I use Schmetz needles all the time now...rarely, if ever, I've had any break on me.
