WTF Friday - learning a new skill

Sometime last summer I was finding out about new and interesting denim repair Dr. Denim.

After watching some videos on free motion sewing, I bought the whole blue rainbow of options in 100% cotton thread at my local chain fabric store. I colour match for projects by laying a strand of my thread on top of my project fabric and seeing if it disappears. With a new pair of blown out jeans to practice on, I did my usual test. Well, denim is apparently much harder to colour match than I expected. This option will be stitch ripped and a darker blue with more grey will be attempted. I still need some practice on the whole free motion thing, this is a little more my machine's darning stitch full feed dogs for the win!
