It’s Hip to Stitch

IMG_0013For Christmas, my grandma gave me a gift certificate to Hipstitch, which is a sewing studio and shop for people with all different skill levels.  Each time you go, you can do a fancier project; next time I am going to do a pillow with curves, and after that a bag.  On this visit, I created a rectangular blue pillow with applique and fancy stitch.  They have innumerable fabrics, and can do all sorts of interesting stitches, which is useful when you make stuffed animals and embroidery, though not clothes.  It was an amazing date with my grandma.

But this was better than ever because I experienced it as another great step towards the design career I see in your future, and I was so happy to be there with you! I enjoyed making my project, too!
