Handmade {Tote} - Yellow and Gray



Welcome everyone, and thanks for stopping by!  

If you're a lover of fabric or crafting, you might be able to relate to my story.  I often purchase fabric without a preconceived idea on what I plan to make.  I so enjoyed making my Yellow Summer Purse, that I found myself on a Yellow fabric kick; I have two more stashes of yellow but don't know  yet what to create with them.
 This project below, I threw in a little grey...because these 
two colors together are very eye catching.

This project came to me, one night in my sleep (that happens often).  I'm like Seinfeld, I have a note pad next to the bed, and write down unexpected thoughts.  It's an occupational hazard; constantly thinking of new products to create.  One of the things I enjoy about what I do.

Here is a picture of my latest creation.  The ruffled detailing is only on the front side, and since I'm a huge fan of buttons, lately I've found myself trying to use them on every project.  I added one to another project I'll be sharing in the coming weeks; green chevron and hot pink



Well, there you have it, a new piece to add to my inventory collection.

If you're new to sewing, I'm currently offering 
a Sewing Lesson Series
Lesson 3, coming soon
Have fun & Good Luck!

I welcome questions for just about anything, visit me on Facebook to join the Handmade by Hilani Community. 

See you there!
