I’m A Supreme!

No, not the Diana Ross kind of Supreme but a Supreme Sewer.

Stephanie from Loft Creations designs the most awesome bags.   A while back, Stephanie asked me if I would like to become a member of her Supreme Sewers, a group of bloggers who test her patterns before they are actually offered for sale in her Etsy shop.   Of course I said yes!

Stephanie asked me to test her Prickly Pear design.   I chose to make mine using the Dandelion Girl line of fabrics from Fig Tree Quilts by Moda.

I absolutely ♥ this design.  The pattern instructions and diagrams were well laid out and extremely easy to follow.  It worked  up quickly and I will certainly be making a bunch more to give as gifts for the holiday season coming up.

Now, if only I could sing…

Happy stitching!

Kaaren ♥

This is so cute Kaaren in that fabric! I didn't know whether to get this pattern or the Lady Finger and Sugar Baby because they are all so cute.
You make a wonderful Supreme.

Never mind, I found it when I went to the link you'd put with it. It's been a long day and my brain isn't working right yet. Had to be to work by 4:00 a.m. on only 3 hours sleep!
