Loftiness...

Hello Everyone,

Once again, thank you for all your lovely and kind comments and e-mails on my little Rolo! He has been getting lots of love and attention. He seems to be feeling slightly better but it is hard to tell. I will keep you posted.

In the meantime, I promised a quilty post and here it is...


As many of you know, I am one of Stephanie's (of Loft Creations fame) Supremes! I really enjoy testing her patterns for her because it always leaves me with something gorgeous. This time was no different.


I made her Loft Tote! This was a fun one and quite versatile too. I chose to use Brandon Mably's Flora fabric, you can find it here.


I accented it with Kona Cotton Solid, which can be found here.


The back shows the simple quilting that I did. This was done on my home sewing machine not my longarm. For something simple and small like this there really is no need to put it on the longarm.


I used a pretty red thread for the quilting to accent both fabrics. A better view or the quilting on the back of the bag.


All in all I think with the combo of fabrics that I chose makes it quite a hip little bag. Great for use everyday or even your favorite teenager!!

Another wonderful bag, by Stephanie!! Be sure to stop by Loft Creations today to see ALL the other versions that were created. I am excited to see them myself.

Also, you can find her patterns for sale on her Etsy site too. Just click here. For those of you who didn't know, I have also begun to sell her patterns here.

Until Next Time...
