As a young mother of four ages one to seven, my daughter is an active young lady! She quilts, sews, researches all manner of quilty and kid topics as well as makes me wonderful gifts!
Today I wanted to show off something she made me. It was a Schlep Bag using the So Sew Easy Schlep pattern from Sentimental Stitches. While in Albuquerque, I visited a cool fabric shop: Hip Stitch (more on them later). They had created an awesome kit for this pattern at an extremely reasonable price.
The only change we made was to make the handles black.
Isn't the fabric so hip!
It lives up to the shop's name:
The opening measures 20.5" and
the bottom is 18".
The depth is a generous 18.5".
It's the perfect weekender,
quilting bee tote
for just schleping around size!
Check out the lining fabric!
We did go ahead and switch out the handles for black fabric.
I love how my daughter
used red thread to jazz it up a bit!
She had a bit left over from these fabrics to create these pouches.
I love me some pouches!
One day I have to show you my collection!
I am so grateful
to have such a
gifted and generous daughter!
As I said before,
she's one of the people
who inspired me to sew!
Ok. Hold onto your hats! If you are in Albuquerque, NM and looking for
- modern "hip" fabrics,
- friendly, knowledgeable staff,
- inspiration and
you must visit Hip Stitch!
While visiting Albuquerque, NM last fall we popped in and wow! It was such an amazing experience! How I wish I had taken pictures! But there are plenty on their website, which by the way so accurately describes their fabrics as "sassy"! Just look at my schlep bag! They have an online store as well!
Oh! Why didn't I take pictures of the store as well as of the purchases I made for my daughter. But, alas, it's all good. Yup, you know what's coming:
In my next post
I'll return to our
regular programming schedule of our
journey into Philippians and
sharing my own projects!
Thank you for allowing me to brag about
share about Hip Stitch!
