We are very lucky to have Cheryl Kuczek, the mind and hands behind Paradiso Designs, right in our backyard! She has a beautiful line of bag patterns, apparel and teaches classes around the region and beyond. She is a pretty busy gal traveling to trade shows and presenting workshops for Paradiso Designs, but she was able to squeeze some sewing time in for us using our beautiful Laurel Burch Basics that just came out with Fabulous Felines. She also used our recently released Laurel Burch Signature thread set from Aurifil. She picked up on the gold flecks and used some really beautiful pleather to complement the colors. I just love what she did here. If you’d like to see this pattern, head out and pick up a copy of the Winter 2012 Quick Stuff to Sew magazine (made by the folks who do Threads magazine) And, for lots of great tutorials, head on over to Cheryl’s blog. It’s amazing how many patterns and goodies designers give away for FREE on their websites. Cheryl is truly a teacher, you can tell by how many posts show techniques and tips that she knows her stuff and wants to share what she has learned. Thanks Cheryl for sharing this with us and we look forward to more great ideas and patterns from Paradiso Designs. Her patterns are available wholesale or retail from her website.
