My first crafting super-hero was without a doubt, Lotta Jansdotter. I think that my crush is almost a decade old now. I just love her simple, clear aesthetic...her earthy palette...the gentle and quirky nature-inspired drawings she prints on her textiles. I once, long ago, even had one of her aprons but it is gone- (you can read about my love of the apron from my Ode to the Apron post here.) I have her stationary, cards, etc. In fact, she is really no longer my crafting super-hero...simply because I have loved her for so long that I now have many new craft crushes. But I would say she is part of my foundation. I am going to make her Simple Dress for my baby girl. And I am using her lovely fabric. The pattern is in her book Simple Sewing for Baby.
