Tease Revealed!

Remember I teased you with a sneak peek here? Today is the reveal! I've had the wonderful pleasure of being a "Supreme pattern tester" for Stephanie at Loft Creations again! This time it was a dual task! Here are Ladyfingers on the left and Sugar Baby! These were a lot of fun to make!
I decided to go out of the box on fabrics. For the Dresdens on Ladyfingers below I used my favorite new Fall fabric, Gobble Gobble by Sandy Gervais. The body of the bag is - believe it or not - Holly Jolly! It just happened to coordinate well, so why not, I said! Each Dresden tip is held down by a little glass bead and I used a King Tut variegated quilting thread for the stitching. The back is identical to the front.
On Sugar Baby below I used my charm pack of Authentic for the Dresdens and Dinosaurs by Michele Wojcicki for the body. I also used the Dinosaur fabric for the inner border and binding on my Halloween stitchery. I decided to alternate green and black beads to hold down the Dresdens.
If you haven't already been there, please check out Stephanie's bags at Loft Creations! I am continually amazed at her sense of design and whimsy!

This is a really cute purse design. Perfect for many occassions. And I must admit it will be an eye catcher with the Thanksgiving/fall colors.

I can't wait to make one!

Very cute!

They are so sweet Candace. Love Stephanie's patterns but the Ladyfingers is the one I have been waiting for since she showed it on her blog back in May I think.

I think your title Supremes is better than my rather irreverent one of Stef's Bag Ladies. LOL Ooo she'll shoot me one of these days.

Utterly appealing. You've done a fantastic job here. Love the style.

Amazing what one can create with those Dresdens!

These are so cute! I would even tackle dresden plate 'leaves' to have a bag like this!

I love the little black one, super cute!

Candace, they are adorable! Your choice of fabrics is fantastic. I especially like the one made with Authentic. I love a modern fabric with a classic/traditional pattern!
