Loft Creations

The date of my last post causes me alarm. Where did all those days go? I'm pretty sure I need a vacation. I really love my job -- I just wish I didn't have to go there so often. :-)

A few weeks ago, Stephanie celebrated some really good news by having a Pattern Palooza.  Her patterns had been picked up by a wholesale company.  I won the entire collection of her patterns!  I had to snap a picture of the wrapping -- too pretty. 


And here are the patterns.  Some of the coolest bags I've ever seen!



You can pick up all of these patterns at Stephanie's Estsy shop here.  Some are even available in .pdf format in case you want to get started today! 

When I opened the package, the first thing I noticed (besides how pretty all the projects are) is the quality of the pattern covers.  The photographs are amazing.  Even the backs of the patterns are unique and appealing.  See?


I can't wait to make one (or all!) of these bags.  It's difficult to decide which one to make first, though.  Saturday Market?  Oak Park?  I'll share pictures of my progress as soon as I make a decision.  :-)

Thank you so much, Stephanie!  And congratulations to you on your well-deserved success!

Such wonderful patterns, and lucky you for being the winner, Kim.

The time does get away from us way too quickly, doesn't it? That just means that we're probably too busy to be bored.

I know exactly what you mean :o) But I guess if we where able to sew around the clock, it woudn't be so fun, and the urge to sew is the one that keeps me wanting to make something creative. Guess I would be lost in my fabrics if I could choose to sew all day... But a nice thought thogh ;o)
Looking forward to see what you'll come up with :o)
