Today I took my mom to Sew Up Seattle’s November session. I had brought a small project my daughter has been asking me to work on. My mom enjoyed meeting everyone, and despite the lack of heat in the (donated) space, we had fun and took advantage of the free fabric and notions. My daughter had outgrown a favorite sweatshirt that has an embroidered/felted doggie scene. (It also had some stains, making it unsuitable for donation.) My mom and I decided the best option was to cut out a triangle, then create a round pillow to which we would attach the triangle. We got about that far at SewUp Seattle, then we’re going to finish it up at home with some gold ball fringe. My mom lives in a rural area, and thinks that a SewUp in her area might be very popular!
