Hip Stitchers

Here's what you all have been stitching up lately!

Janet picked up some of our home decorator fabric on clearance and sewed 3 Gum Drop Pillows:

 Julie made this fabulous bag.  She brought in a pattern that she had purchased in a shop in Florida, and together we struggled through a maze of confusion as we tried to figure out how much fabric she'd need to make the bag.  She went home, then came back with the finished bag:
One side:

Other side:

and label chosen to go on it, to be given to her friend who has a great sense of humor:

Cousins Bemsha and Ashley each made a jelly roll race quilt this summer.  Bemsha surprised her mom with the 
finished quilt: 
 (I love her mom's expression of pure pride & love as she looks at Bemsha)

Here's a close-up of it:

And Ashley's, finished just before her birthday:

Tessa whipped up a doll outfit - all by hand:

Catherine brought in 2 quilts she made:

Rug hooking teacher Cathy Kelly shared a challenge she did.  Take a fabric and design and make a rughooked project.  She chose one of designer Laura Gunn's fabrics to make this knitting needle holder:

Customer Abigail finished a quilt top using a 
Moda fabric as her sashing:
(it's now off to be quilted with Kathryn Fuller)

Yvette made this beautiful hand embroidered linen, using Heather Bailey's pattern:

Susan came in with her finished T-shirt, which she made this summer in the lounge:

Gayle made this great Charm Clutch with 
Amy Butler's pattern:

And finally, a young Hip Stitcher left this smiling pincushion for me in the lounge.  It made my day:
