About

HipNotions Tool Belts LLC, Tool Belts for Everyone Else

I, Betty Ottesen, owner of HipNotions Tool Belts LLC, started my sewing career making clothing, doing alterations and designing window treatments. Back in those days I called myself "In Stitches". Thanks to a supportive husband, I worked out of our home raising three children and a cat. Then fast forward, the kids grew up, married and two moved back into the area. My son-in-law helped set up my first websites. My daughter photographed the models with tool belts. Then she moved away and my other daughter moved back into the area to start an upholstery business out of my large workshop. We now have each other to share in the dynamics of creating with fiber and working with customers. I also need to mention my husband who helps with his carpentry and electrical skills to keep our work spaces well lit with large cutting tables and other work surfaces.

The tool belt idea began with a question. Why should only builders and carpenters have a wonderful assortment of tool belts? Why have sewers been deprived of such invention? Around 2002 a sewing prototype was born. Other people saw it and wanted one. Research into patent or not to patent was done. Business plan was written. Yes, after all these years of sewing a plan was made! Thanks to the wonderful discovery of the Internet there was a vehicle to make this venture profitable. Even better a place called Etsy that put HipNotions out to the world in 2010 with one lone item, the Basic 8 Pocket tool belt which later sported a removable velcro pin cushion to become the Sewing tool belt.

As time went on I soon found myself designing tool belts with a diverse population of professionals. They included nurses, EMTs, veterinarians, managers, display artists, wait staff, hair stylists, gardeners, dog trainers, educators, sales associates, surveyors, language coaches, event planners and engineers. Many prototypes and designs have never seen the light of the website. I turned into a cereal designer. It was too much to handle. It was time to rein myself in and stick to basic black and the core designs seen here in the Etsy shop. In 2017 a manufacturer in the United States came on board with quality workmanship. This will free up time for more marketing and sales.


The fabrics and add ons have also evolved over time. The first tool belts were made of medium weight cotton canvas, a fabric my home sewing machine could handle. In 2015 a heavy duty industrial sewing machine was purchased capable of punching through PVC backed polyester. The polyester tool belts are used in the larger tool belts. Both fabrics are offered on the smaller tool belts.

ABOUT THE HIPNOTIONS TOOL BELTS

The tool belts are made of 100% cotton duck canvas or heavy PVC backed polyester. At this time all belts, buckles and edging are in black. A change was made to more a durable polypropylene bias edging from the previous cotton bias. Adjustable web belts are made of polypropylene 1” or 1.5” black webbing with side release buckles.

Velcro Tape Loop
Elastic Cord Lock
20lb. Pull Magnet

I am no longer doing individual new design or the tweaking of current designs. However, a little customizing can be done with add ons which include hook and loop straps, swivel clasps, magnets, elastic cordlocks and embroidered name tags.
