While I haven't had much in the way of sewing posts, I really have been sewing! Today I get to show you one of my latest "Supreme Pattern Tests" for Stephanie of Loft Creations! You can also win a PDF of this fantastic new design!
Stephanie's new bag design is called Caity Did. I had a great time making this bag as well as picking out the fabrics. I wanted something for spring, so off I went to my local quilt shop, Stash. I chose to use a line called Simply Color by V and Co. It has the spring colors I wanted and I am a pushover for florals! I wish the inset colors photographed better, but I can tell you the crisscross is a ribbon that very closely matches the green in the floral print.
My lilacs are in bloom - not very many blooms, but they are oh, so fragrant. I was nearly mesmerized by the fragrance as I stood taking photos! The fabric in the handles is actually a variegated print which is why one side looks lighter than the other.
Stephanie's design includes a peek-a-boo lining which I think really sets off the main print. Here is a peek inside the bag. Do hop over to Stephanie's blog to see her original creation and a chance to win there as well and also to Mary on Lake Pulaski's blog. Mary is another of Stephanie's Supreme's who also tested the pattern and is giving away a PDF version as well!
I have to admit that I also chose this fabric because it coordinates really well with one of my favorite spring jackets and a pair of dark washed jeans!
Meanwhile, Sasha continues to be a joy in our lives here at the Squash House! She loves to sit next to me in the mornings while I drink my latte and check email. It's hard to see, but she is positioned right in the middle of a sunbeam.
Yesterday she decided to check out what I was sewing. I had to explain to her the dangers of getting one of those pretty little paws caught in the needle. Hopefully, she understands.
So don't forget to leave a comment about your favorite spring blooming flower and be entered in a chance to win a PDF version of Caity Did! Sasha will help to pick a winner on Thursday, April 25th.
