Meet Andi from BitchAndStitch

Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
Well, my name’s Andi, I’m 18 and from Scotland but living in England. I love sushi, I like way too much Asian food. I knit and sew and my mum taught me how to do both, she helps me make things for my store.

Tell us about what you sell:
At the moment it’s mainly baby hats. I knit a lot, so does my mum, we also sew a lot and we’ve decided we’re going to make custom bedding and curtians so you can have a matching room and nursery and everything. There’s a bag, we’re trying to make a couple more of those, a couple of aprons, and some baby jackets. And I mustn’t forget my monster dress!

What is your favorite thing about creating?
Seeing the finished product, I like seeing the fabric or the wool in it’s unmade form turn into something amazing! It’s so great seeing something you made. I love the compliments I get too, I wore my monster print dress to London and loads of kids said I looked nice and that they liked my dress. I’ve also made fluffy outfits with skirts and legwarmers like my etsy display picture, I love things like that! Becuase nobody else will ever look like Andi!

Where do you find your inspiration?

Mainly from the fabric or wool shop, I look at the fabric, say it has cakes on it like the ice cream apron I made, I think “Who would want that, where would they use it, what would they want it for?” I decided that the ice creams were food and food went in the kitchen so I was going to make some curtians for my mum, but in the end we decided on making a pair of aprons, then I made a pinafore dress out of some left over. I also look around Etsy to see what other people are selling and I think about what I want too.

Pink and white newborn or doll headband

    nice to see someone so young crafting ……I just don’t get it when someone proudly says ‘I can’t even thread a needle’
