Sold - "Yowsa!"

I'm in love with an inanimate object. You'll understand why, and you'll fall under its spell when you meet "Yowsa!". I often fall in love with my Hang Ups. It has little to do with me and everything to do with the fabric designers. A few weeks ago I whipped up a tote from Mark Lipinski's collection, Califon. It sold within minutes. Seriously. Yesterday I got in the mood to create another tote using Mark's fabric, but this time I wanted to throw in a little twist, so I headed off to my favorite fabric store in town to try and find a contrasting fabric that wasn't from the Califon line. Have you ever heard of Kaffe Fassett? He designs wonderous fabrics with bold, bright colors! I found the perfect fit in one of Kaffe's creations to extol the audacious designs from the Califon line. Today this Hang Up was fashioned and I named her "Yowsa!" An apt description if you ask me. I used two fabrics from the Califon collection -- one on the bottom of the tote and the other for the lining. Then I used one of Fassett's creations, called Paperweight Cobalt, on the top of the tote. Isn't she a beauty?

"Yowsa" has all the usual features... large inside pocket, fully lined with double interfacing for extra support, fabric-covered removable reinforced base, 22" reinforced fabric straps. This Hang Up measures approximately 14 1/2" x 12". The price includes postage anywhere within the continental U.S. Send me an email (my address is on my sidebar) if you are interested in purchasing this beautiful Hang Up!
