The kids' summer sewing academy concluded, and here's just a sampling of what was made:
Delia, in her lounge pants, that she made when Hip Stitch 1st opened....and she told us how well the fabric has held up, wash after wash after wash.....:
A wonderful customer came in with this bag, The Chubby Charmer.....pattern soon to be carried at Hip Stitch:
Me, wearing a wrap shirt made from....oh, dang it, I can't remember the name of the book.....borrowed from Carla, who picked it up in San Francisco. The pattern ran large, so the next one I make will be a size smaller. I made it from our new shot cottons, and LOVE the fabric!
A before and after project that I did for a young gal, for a baby shower gift. She brought in a standard cloth diaper/burp cloth:
I added a polka dot fabric trim, a ribbon border, and Melissa Maher embroidered the last name on.....finished off with tabs at the ends for baby to rub:
Torri took Hip Stitch basics, then went on to Sewing 101. Sharon has students made a muslin pair of trousers in this class, to learn constructing pants, zippers, waistband, buttonholes and more. Since Torri was the only one in this session, she picked out the fabric and made the trousers for her little boy:
Cher (no, not THAT Cher) came in, and showed off the quilt she recently finished. The pictures don't do it justice....it was BEAUTIFUL:
