Hip Stitchers

Dresses to quilts....bags to jackets - here they are!

Janet made the Washi Dress from Jen Fox's Nomad fabric:

Love this!  
(Am motivated to make myself another Washi!)

Diane brought in her purse - Jen Fox's Button Flap purse pattern, made with our new
"A Field Guild" fabric line from Moda:

Young quilter/sewer Lily is making a jacket from the book Sew Serendipity:

I snuck up behind/next to her to catch a few pics of it - 
still a work in progress, but looking fabulous!

A gorgeous Jelly Roll race quilt was brought in to share:

Haley made this costume for a school presentation, using Moda solids and our new Robert Kaufman line, 
Santa Fe Spice:

Debra made this at craft night.  She started with a flat knitted rectangle and a pair of jeans.  She seam ripped the zipper out of the jeans, cut them apart for the lining of this:

...and in about an hour, was done....recycling at its best!

A sweet Hip Stitcher, McKenna, just held onto this bolt of Alexander Henry flannel like it was a puppy dog.  She finally....reluctantly....had to leave.  But she'll be back - TWO different folks just bought her Hip Stitch gift certificates for her birthday!

And finally, a finished purse made today in the lounge at a private party.....of the 7 gals making this bag, 2 finished, 1 will finish at home, and the remaining 4 will be coming in this week to complete this cute McCall's pattern.
They all did an amazing job, despite being at different levels of sewing, and fatigue hitting them after 4 hours of speed cutting and sewing.
