Hi and welcome to Betty Stitchup! My name is Coo and I'm a singer who loves to sew, which gives me a fabulous excuse to buy more fabric and make more clothes!
I discovered my love for sewing through my love of music. My good friend and fellow bandmate, Tracey taught me how to sew. We were both frustrated at not being able to find the kind of stage clothes that we wanted to wear so it seemed there was only one solution - make our own! That was back in 2010 and I've been mad for it ever since.
I'm mostly drawn to retro styles and I love to sew with fun prints: cherries, gingham, animal print, monsters! - you name it, it's in my stash.
I've created this blog to keep track of my sewing exploits and to share any tips I learn along the way. I've gained so much from all the generous sewing bloggers out there who so kindly share their knowledge and give inspiration to their readers. I thought it was about time to give back and share what I can and connect with other sewists out there.
I hope you enjoy exploring my blog and please get in touch, I'd love to hear from you.
