I used a quilting cotton for the pockets and fly thing and I used black satin binding on the waistband. The overlock thread seems a brilliant blue in this shot, but it actually matches quite well. After last weekend and the thread issues with my machine, I tried a few different threads. I bought a reel of denim thread just to see how it worked and I am complete convert. I didn't have a sample of fabric with me when I chose it and I fluked a perfect match. It's a Gutermann thread and I'm going to use it every time I sew denim now, the stitches just disappear. If they make it in larger reels I will buy it for overlocking next time.
I'm still on my mission to knit everything in my stash. These little beanies take about 1 and a quarter of a 50g ball of 8ply. The pattern came from Knitty.com Winter 2009 edition. I knit a lot of things from their website. if you're trying to get rid of small amounts of yarn they have loads of patterns for caps, scarves even headbands (as well as garment patterns).
