Hello…I’m Stephanie of Loft Creations. I was tickled when Connecting Threads asked me to guest post.
This is my Modern Mary Jane pattern. Retro fun! This is a great pattern for highlighting a large print fabric for the center panel. When I design a new bag, I like to try out different fabrics in hopes that I can appeal to a wide audience, and to show the versatility of one single pattern.
Modern Mary Jane is cute and cozy dressed up using a linen calendar for the center panel. This is my personal bag. It’s a perfect size for holding files and date books. I use this as my business bag.
Using a vintage doily for the center panel gives Modern Mary Jane a soft and frilly look. She looks great dressed in whatever she’s wearing.
Modern Mary Jane in Tulane — bright and sophisticated. I’m very excited that Connecting Threads now has Modern Mary Jane available as a kit with their gorgeous new fabrics. Kits are perfect — minimal cutting, then all you have to do is sew! Modern Mary Jane sews up quickly and makes a great gift — birthday, teacher appreciation, caregiver, Mother’s Day, Christmas…the kits make great gifts, too! And don’t forget to make a Modern Mary Jane for yourself.
